- $47,300 donated to Bernie Sanders this cycle
In a bizarre story uncovered by The Center for Public Integrity, actor Daniel Craig was apparently duped in an effort to fund a pro-Bernie Sanders super PAC. The man behind 007 gave $47,300 to someone with a history of financial mischief who claimed to be supporting Sanders. The senator's campaign has asked the PAC founder to stop taking donations on Sanders' behalf.
