Do lawyers give tons of money to all the candidates?

An anonymous reader posted a comment writing "Lawyers have given tons of money to all of the candidates- this is a non-story."

But the campaign finance reports do not agree with this claim. According to these reports, attorneys contributed the following amounts to the campaigns:

Schofield $13,950
Glennon $700
Selvig $250
Ciommo $200
Hanlon $200

It is worth noting that there are contributors to all campaigns who did not list their occupation and the occupation/employer information is not independently verified so it may be less than completely inaccurate. Finally, like everyone else, there are lawyers doing great work for society and lawyers who more motivated by money and power than the impact of their efforts.
