The Perils of Bestseller Status

Today the Minneapolis Star Tribune has a report on Dean Koontz' contributions to political campaigns ("Author Dean Koontz Backs Bachmann"). Federal Election Commission (FEC) records show Koontz gave Michele Bachmann $5,000 on March 31. He had previously given $25,000 to the McCain-Palin ticket in 2008, and $4,800 to the Christine O'Donnell Senate campaign, as well as $4,800 to Sharron Angle's campaign.

I'm not saying I wouldn't love Dean Koontz success and money, but life on the midlist means never having your political contributions revealed in the Star Tribune. I rest easier knowing the Anna Murray fortune can be discretely distributed to candidates -- without fear of alienating readership on the other side of the aisle ;-)
