Alexander Received $51,500 from Electric Utilities in 2007-2008

Facing South shows the influence that the electric utilities special interests have through dollars donated to members of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, which is holding hearings into the Christmas TVA ash spill beginning tomorrow. While Lamar Alexander is not in the upper echelon of recipients, $51,500 is remarkably close to what the average Republican on the committee receives from big utilities.  Plus, Alexander's take is also sweetened by several thousand more in campaign financing from TVA's current individual board members over the years.
