UPDATED w/ House ratings: Halliburton Voter Guide

Via anonymous tipster, comes a voter guide from the Contract Services Association (CSA) that you won't want to miss!

The CSA, whose president Christopher Jahn, was the Chief of Staff for Wyoming Republican Craig Thomas, is an influential organization of Military (and other) government contractors, with $40 billion in contracts. Some of the 200 or so members you'll recognize as major providers of Iraq War personnel and services:

  • DynCorp
  • Kellogg Brown and Root (a Halliburton subsidiary)
  • L-3 Communications
  • Lockheed Martin
  • Northrop Grumman
  • Pacific Architects and Engineers, Inc.
  • SAIC
  • The Shaw Group, Inc.
  • Wackenhut Corporation

The CSA also has an illustrious history of lobbying against regulations on human trafficking: "A proposal prohibiting defense contractor involvement in human trafficking for forced prostitution and labor was drafted by the Pentagon last summer, but five defense lobbying groups oppose key provisions..."

Let's see if you can spot the pattern in the members of the Senate loved by your friendly neighborhood military contractor... And special gift for the reader who creates a spreadsheet from the House PDF that matches my Senate spreadsheet below...

UPDATE: Thanks to all the readers who assembled House guides... the first came from Pat Fletcher of Tacoma, WA. Thanks Pat! And please, pass this along so all your Halliburton stockholder pals will know whom to vote back into office... Pink is Republican (A means contractors love you!) and blue is Democrat...
