Ex-Rep. Tauscher Was Big August DCCC Donor

The campaign arm of House Democrats got a six-figure parting gift last month from the campaign committee of ex-California Rep. Ellen O. Tauscher, who is now an arms control official in the State Department.

Tauscher resigned in June after more than a dozen years representing California’s 10th District. Her campaign committee was shuttered on Sept. 16, but not before it transferred $124,500 to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee on Aug. 22.

Tauscher’s committee also gave $2,000 apiece to the campaign committees of California Democratic Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer. Boxer is up for re-election in 2010.
