Obama Transition Team Releases Donors

The Obama-Biden transition team today released its first monthly list disclosing the names of donors to the transition and the size of their contributions. The list can be found here.

As of November 15, the transition has raised $1,170,937.44 from 1,776 donors, for an average donation of $659.31. The contributions range in size from $5 to the $5,000 legal maximum.

According to the transition, it accepts donations only from individuals, and rejects any from corporations, labor unions, political action committees, registered federal lobbyists and registered foreign agents.

A quick review of the largest donations indicates many appear to come from lawyers and those working in the financial industry. This is not entirely surprising. According to OpenSecrets.org, lawyers and the financial industry were the second and fourth largest sources of contributions to the presidential campaign’s of both Obama and Sen. John McCain (‘retired’ was the largest.)

There are a few interesting donors. Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google, and William Daley, former commerce secretary, both are advisers to the transition and contributed the maximum.

However, the one that really jumped out was a $5,000 donation from George Lucas, of the San Rafael, Calif.-based Lucasfilm Ltd. — the director and producer of the “Star Wars” franchise.
