Why is this relevant? Who cares who gives to one organization or another. Some people will use this information for the wrong purpose. Another big brother spy tool to look into private lives. Can you say socialist or communist tactics? You should be embarrassed that you thought this was newsworthy. The Patch is such a left leaning organization that I probably won't be following anymore. I like it for the local news but the political aspect to most of your stories is in bad taste and poor journalism. Journalist are supposed to be impartial.
