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.
