It’s only evil when Republicans do it.
One of the largest donors to the pro-Obama Super PAC Priorities USA is the founder and former CEO of a company that pioneered the practice of shipping work overseas.
Dr. Irwin Jacobs, who founded the telecommunications firm Qualcomm in 1985 and served as chairman and CEO until March 2009, gave $2 million to Priorities USA in June, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
He has also given $100,000 to American Bridge 21st Century, the left-wing research operation funded by billionaire financier George Soros.
Jacobs has personally donated more than $370,000 to Democratic candidates and committees since 2007, including nearly $12,000 to President Obama.
His net worth is estimated at almost $2 billion.
