The focus? Political subdivisions targeted for the groups current and future projects.
A more in-depth review of major donor and political action committee reports reveals Lewis Pacific Partners and Affiliated Entities funded an astounding total of $3,124,162.12 in contributions reported on-line between 01/01/2000 and 06/30/2009. The contributions were directed to candidates, ballot measures, and political action committees. There is undoubtedly more contributions disclosed in manually paper filed reports.
