The NY Post reports on the political contributions of R. Allen Stanford, the latest accused billion-dollar swindler:

Stanford’s also a big political contributor, and can boast of having thrown his support behind some of Washington’s heaviest hitters.

Since 1996, Stanford has donated $861,000 to various political causes and candidates, most of them Democrats, including $500,000 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, President Barack Obama, Sen. Chuck Schumer and US Rep. Charlie Rangel.

He’s also donated $3,000 to Sen. Chris Dodd, (D-Conn.), chairman of the Senate Banking Committee.
