Salt Lake Tribune: Utah's Big Political Donors
Today's Salt Lake Tribune has a detailed story naming Utah's biggest political donors and probing the reasons why they donate. Although the first part of the article focuses on individual donors, most of whom don't seem to benefit personally from their contributions, it later discusses the biggest donors among business interests, which give far more, and the benefits they expect to receive in return. Be sure to read the quotes at the end of the article from UEG's Kim Burningham and BYU professor Quin Monson.
