It has already been widely reported that Bankman-Fried was the Democrat's second-largest doner, just behind George Soros, but this latest revelation shows just how massive an influence the disgraced crypto-bro may have had over politics in the last few years.
"Since July, Bankman-Fried has made $5,800 contributions, the maximum individuals can give directly to Congressional campaigns, to the committees of Bill Cassidy (R-La.), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), Mitt Romney (R-Utah) and Richard Burr, the North Carolina Republican who announced plans to retire at the end of his term in 2023," the Forbes piece said.
It was already reported by the Financial Times on Tuesday that Bankman-Fried's balance sheet listed a $7 million dollar asset called "TRUMPLOSE".
The disgraced FTX founder donated approximately $38 million to various Democratic candidates and PACs from 2021-2022, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings.
He was known for primarily donating to left-wing causes, and made the biggest contribution to the Protect Our Future PAC, a group founded in January that funded Democratic candidates in the midterms.
The PAC's largest donation went to a candidate who ran for Oregon's 6th Congressional District, Carrick Flynn. Despite receiving $10.5 million, he was defeated in the Democratic primary by Andrea Salinas.
However, a month before the midterm elections, Flynn touted his $2,900 donation to Salinas' campaign on a "less than $45k" a year salary, claiming that "my money is where my mouth is when I say that I believe she will do an excellent job representing Oregonians in DC."
Salinas went on to win her seat by just two percentage points.
Some of the other candidates who received donations from the PAC are Lucy McBath of Georgia, Shontel Brown of Ohio, Adam Hollier of Michigan, and Josh Lafazan of New York.
Protect Our Future has claimed to be a bipartisan committee, but the only contributions it has made are to Democrats.
