Some major Corporations are shelling out big bucks for Virginia politics.
A computer-assisted analysis of state campaign finance records shows that Democrats and Republicans are both getting backing from business political action committees.
For example, Dominion Resources has given nearly equal amounts, about 35-thousand dollars, to Democrat Don Beyer and Republican Jim Gilmore.
Likewise -- but about half as much -- for M-C-I Telecommunications.
NationsBank gave a thousand dollars to each.
Virginia Power has given almost 20-thousand dollars to Gilmore and half that to Beyer.
