Add another reason to the list of why left-leaning Washingtonians might not be fans of one of their football team’s quarterbacks: Someone with the name of John Beck donated to GOP contender Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign.
According to records on OpenSecrets.org, John D. Beck doled out $200 on Sept. 21 of this year to the former Massachusetts governor’s campaign. The donor’s profession is listed as “Miami Dolphins/Pro Athlete.”
While Beck’s Romney donation might not raise eyebrows elsewhere, it could draw a penalty from devoted fans of the perpetually struggling hometown team. In the 2008 presidential election, 93 percent of voters in the District went for Barack Obama.
