2. votes follow campaign contributions

my contention is that we could be better represented

*cF, ceF, ceFs, ceFta, ceFtasm

[update] the 1st picture above is with new data from same linked source, below is the original as posted on 10/10/2009, special trade contractors and misc business have been replaced by electric utilities and retail sales in the list; also adjusted formatting of pictures
