IRS employees donated more than twice as much to President Barack Obama's 2012 re-election campaign than they did to Republican nominee Mitt Romney's presidential bid.

Out of the $160,303 donated from IRS workers, $54,116 went to the Obama campaign from 2011 to 2012, compared to $20,991 donated to Romney during the same period, according to data from the Center for Responsive Politics. The rest went to political action committees, the Democratic and Republican parties, and outside spending groups.

IRS workers also donated $5,000 to Maryland Democratic Sen. Ben Cardin's 2012 campaign, $4,550 to Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren's election effort, and $3,260 to Texas Rep. Ron Paul's GOP presidential campaign.
