FYI: New York City leads the country in federal campaign contributions, but 93 percent of donations come from majority white zip codes, according to a Citizens Action of New York report. One zip code—Manhattan’s 10021—is the largest contributor in the country; it is 86.4 percent white. It donated more than twice the amount of the combined contributions of all 146 New York State zip codes with more than 50 percent people of color. The researchers say the study shows a diminishing influence for minorities in national politics. [1/23/04]
