As it turns out, Bernie Madoff was a pretty reliable contributor to Democrats. OpenSecrets has a list of his campaign contributions.

It's pretty run-of-the-mill stuff. Since 1992 he's given $2,000 to Hillary Clinton, $12,000 to Chuck Schumer; $102,000 to the DSCC (will they give that money back?).

The one thing that sticks out is his sole contribution to a leftist PAC: Madoff gave money to NARAL. Nothing really surprising there. Except that he only gave them $250.
