Sent in Your $1 Million Yet?

Friday, 03 November 2000 12:00 AM

According to a report in Friday's issue of the Washington Post, here's how some of those major contributions break down.

• Overall for this election, at least 20 companies, unions or individuals have contributed $1 million or more, twice as many as in 1996.

• American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) just recently sent $1 million to the Democratic National Committee.

That's in addition to $625,000 it gave earlier to the DNC and $350,000 to the Democratic House of Representatives and Senate campaign committees.

In all so far, that brings AFSCME's total soft-money contributions to the Democratic Party to $7.5 million, a whopping amount more than the $1.7 million it gave four years ago.

• The United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners sent in $1.1 million last month, $610,000 of it for Senate races and $500,000 for the those in the House.

That makes its total for this year nearly $1.4 million, far more than its $174,000 four years ago.

• Between Oct. 1 and 18, the DNC garnered eight contributions of $200,000 or more.

• Slimfast founder Daniel Abraham, who had already given more than $1 million to the Democrats, also gave $200,000 to the House Democrats' campaign, $100,000 to Senate Democrats and an additional $125,000 to Hillary Clinton's soft-money committee.

• Children's television programming mogul Haim Saban, just to top someone, gave a total of $500,001 – he attached a $1 bill – to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

• Baltimore Orioles owner Peter G. Angelos, a trial lawyer, gave the DNC and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee a total of $500,000.

• Hollywood screenwriter Stephen Bing contributed $385,000 to the DNC.

• California entrepreneur Roland Arnall of Ameriquest Capital gave $360,000 to the DNC.

• Hogar LLC, with corporate headquarters in a San Jose, Calif., gave $350,000 to the DNC.

• The Republican National Committee has about 170 Regents, individuals and companies who have given $250,000 or more in this election.

• The RNC raked in five contributions of $200,000 or more between Oct. 1 and 18.

• Tom Siebel, chief executive of Siebel Systems Inc. of San Mateo, Calif., the world's leading supplier of software for online commerce, contributed $500,000 to the House Republican campaign committee.

• David and Gail Liniger, a Colorado couple who run the Re/Max International brokerage company, each gave $250,000 to the RNC.
