While answering "How much money did Obama's Ebola czar Ron Klain donate to the Democratic Party? " I started wondering why? He - clearly a very powerful and successful and rich lawyer - donated so little compared to his cohort:
In the 2008 election cycle, the industry contributed a massive $234 million to federal political candidates and interests , 76 percent of which went to Democratic candidates and committees. (opensecrets)
As someone who works in a company that places official restrictions on political donations due to various regulations, it seems possible to me that similar restrictions may have played a role; however, I'm completely unfamiliar with whether any political donation limits exist in government positions that this individual held.
Are/were there specific restrictions on political donations for any of the positions that Wikipedia lists for Ron Klain for 1998-2008 time period, government or private sector?
