Political Bias In Government

Found this item on Insty where neither comments nor permalinks seem to be working right now:
COULD THIS BE WHY IRS ILLEGALLY HARASSED 292 RIGHT GROUPS IN 2010 AND 2012? Kathryn Watson says analysis of campaign contributions made by IRS workers between 1990 and 2014 found twice as many of them contributed to Democrats as did to GOP candidates and causes. The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group’s analysis was based on FEC data compiled by OpenSecrets.org.
Since most people vote their pocketbooks, and government employees thrive when government is expanded, it makes sense that government employees vote overwhelmingly Democratic.Typically I've seen numbers well north of 90% cited. That being the general case, finding out that the IRS is going 66/33 in favor of the Dems would seem to make them one of the most conservative wings of the government.

Aren't you glad they aren't made up of the same people who staff the EPA?
