New Time Warner Prez FEC File: $2,500 for Kerry

The new head of Time Warner's media empire is Jeff Bewkes, who's coming over from the company's highly successful HBO division.

Democrats may find much to rejoice over with this pick to replace Richard Parsons, who isn't shy about sharing his wealth with GOP candidates and their causes.

Bewkes' Federal Election Commission file reveals he's donated relatively little to politicians. Actually, he's donated to just a single candidate since 1995, none other than John Kerry's senatorial runs.

Bewkes gave a total of $2,500 to Kerry for his senate seat, but nothing for his failed 2004 bid to oust Bush from the White House.

And Bewkes has contributed $10,000 since 1992 to the National Cable and Telecommunications Association Political Action Committee (NCTA PAC).

Given that he's donated only to Kerry, and no one else, I'd say we know much about his donkey party leanings.
