If you ever wondered why The Walt Disney Company’s entertainment division and ABC News appear to veer to the left, perhaps it’s because top executives at their parent companies have been bankrolling liberals.

Chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company Robert Iger, and Co-Chairman and Chief Creative Officer of The Walt Disney Studios Alan Horn, have contributed at least $432,500 collectively to Democratic Party presidential candidates, Democratic Party Senate and House races, liberal PAC(s) and Democratic Party-linked committees, according to the latest FEC data.

Robert Iger, formerly part of the senior management team of Disney as Chairman of the Disney-owned ABC Group (1996) and later as President of Walt Disney International in 1999, has contributed $99,000 to Democrat senate candidates and committees for the current election cycle. This amount included $87,800 in contributions to the liberal Senate Impact 2020 joint fundraising committee ($52,300) and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) ($35,500).

Iger contributed the maximum amount to Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) ($2,800), Sen. Gary Peters (D-MI) ($2,800), Sen. John F. Reed (D-RI) ($2,800), and Mark Kelly (D) ($2,800) in Arizona.

The Senate Impact 2020 joint fundraising committee is associated with the Democratic Party, according to Open Secrets, and DSCC references itself on its website as “the only organization solely dedicated to electing a Democratic Senate.”

Iger also sits on the board of directors for liberal megadonor Michael Bloomberg’s Bloomberg Philanthropies, which has an extensive history of promoting left-wing causes, like bankrolling the anti-coal movement. Iger even recently decided to keep his mouth shut about Communist China regarding the Hong Kong protests because he claimed, “To take a position that could harm our company in some form would be a big mistake.”

Alan Horn, meanwhile, who “is responsible for the creative strategy and global operations of Disney’s world-class Studio Entertainment division,” contributed to several Democratic Party presidential candidates, including former Vice President Joe Biden ($2,800), Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) ($2,800), Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) ($1,000) and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) ($1,000).

Horn has also funded multiple Senate and House candidates:

Contributing a whopping $79,550 to the Nancy Pelosi Victory Fund and the maximum amount to the Democratic Party Speaker of the House’s personal campaign fund ($2,800), Horn has also given $211,750 collectively to Senate Impact 2020 ($52,300), the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) ($118,950), the DSCC ($35,500) and $5,000 to the liberal PAC to the Future, which is affiliated with Pelosi.

In total, Horn has given $333,500 to Democratic Party candidates, committees and PAC(s).

Second-quarter FEC data revealed earlier this year that 29 Disney/ABC execs also contributed exclusively to Democrats and none to President Donald Trump.
