The FundRace Neighbor Search allows you to search the 2004 presidential donor lists by address, ZIP code and name. Some interesting finds: Jerry Springer gave $2,000 to fellow Ohioan Dennis Kucinich, Bank One CEO James Dimon gave $2,000 to both Dick Gephardt and George Bush, and Cubs sportscaster Steve Stone liked Joe Lieberman.

The site also draws an interesting map of the city's political leanings. The residents of 950 N. Michigan Ave. have given the most to any party: $20,750 to the GOP. With $11,800 in contributions, 161 E. Chicago Ave. is the building that has given the most to the Democrats. (Figures are only through the end of 2003.)
