Political Affilation of Gibbs and Joey T
 
Got the link to this site from a Cowboys forum. Shows political donations of major sports figures. Both Gibbs and Joey T are on it. I am not gonna say who is a Dem or a Rep find that out by checking the site, and please do not remove this thread, its kind of interesting.

meh, many of those you just have to look at the person and you would know but I am surprised with Jerry jones going 53/47. Giving to both.

We got al michaels, Brunell, and gibbs as giving to the republicans. No surprises there. Gibbs is a religious nascar owner. We won't hold it against them though.

why would you be surprised, its required by law to make donations public.

and there's nothing wrong with gibbs giving to george allen, after all, his dad did get us to a superbowl.

Jerry Jones, like many other big business owners, often donate to both parties just so everybody's happy when he needs something from whichever political party happens to be in power.

I guess you're referring to me. I'm not surprised, just saying it's weird. You know secret ballot and all that. I guess if you know the donation, you know who they're voting for. Not that it matters either way.

so....'sup with Ramsey?

Notice that most of the white race car drivers are GOP where the black basketball players (Malone doesn't count- as Barkley refers to him as "black redneck) are Democrats?

Interesting...

I guess this would be the ONE area where Matty would openly disagree with Joe Gibbs -- right Matty?

It just goes to show that it is no [font='Times New Roman']coincidence things go really well when the GOP is in the White House. 3 superbowls under reagan[/font]
[font='Times New Roman']george allen era: Nixon/ Ford. That made my day to find out for sure Gibbs is Red not Blue.[/font]

I never really lived in a predominately republican place. i used to live in Ohio and even then there was a good mix up north. I live in Maryland now, right outside DC. It is very liberal and I won't live in any republican place. Maybe if I go to texas... :eek:.

And in the Northern Virginia region, I am a proud Democrat in N.VA. Northern VA is totally different than what most people think VA is like. I really hate it when I tell people I am from VA and they think I live on a farm. There was actually some talk about N.Va succeeded lol, because of its differences and because were not getting enough of our tax dollars back. The point is VA differs alot, especially out by tidewater(higher minority population, do not worry I am a minority too so I am allowed to say that lol) and N.Va(very close to DC, therefore more suburban/urban and populized)
