Topping the list is the posh Manhattan zip code of 10021, where residents have contributed more than $6 million to political causes, 77 percent of which has gone to Democrats. That’s a zip code that has been billed as one of the most exclusive in the country and whose residents, The New York Times reported a few years ago, once included Michael R. Bloomberg, David Rockefeller, Rupert Murdoch, Ronald Perelman, Spike Lee, Tom Wolfe and Gay Talese.
This year, the top 10 donors in the zip code all gave identical amounts, $30,400, to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee or Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. The Democratic donor list in 10021 includes Pilar Crespi Robert, a fashion consultant who once appeared on Vanity Fair magazine’s International Best-Dressed Hall of Fame and who is the wife of former Oppenheimer Chairman Stephen Robert.
Other heavy Democratic donors in 10021 are Eton Park Capital CEO Eric Mindich and his wife Stacey, Blur Ridge Capital partner John Griffin, and Irene Schwartz, wife of former Loral Space and Communication CEO Bernard Schwartz. Schwartz is one of the Democratic Party’s all-time biggest donors.Page 2 of 4 | Prev Page | Next Page
