Chicago attorney and best-selling crime novelist Scott Turow, who was recently re-installed as president of New York City's antiquated Authors Guild, not only sells a lot of books, he buys a lot of politicians. According to OpenSecrets.org, a website maintained by the Center for Responsive Politics, Turow has contributed more than $25,000 to the campaigns of various politicians since the year 1990, including contributions to Paul Simon, Bill Clinton, Carol Moseley Braun, Danny K. Davis, Al Gore, Dick Durbin, Barack Obama, Ted Kennedy, Howard Dean, John Kerry and the Prairie PAC. I wonder if Turow has contacted
Larry Hoover Dan Rostenkowski Tony Rezko Rod Blagojevich Roland Burris Rahm Emanuel yet to complain about e-book piracy.
