Hollywood's Top Political Donor in 2013 Gave to...Republicans?

NewsBusters frequently reports Hollywood's finest supporting liberal politicians and causes.

Yet a new study by the Center for Responsive Politics published by The Wrap Sunday found that the top political donors in showbiz so far this year are Florida music producer Bill Edwards and his wife Joanne who gave $164,800 to - hold on to your seats - Republicans.

Look at that. Seven of the top 20 political contributors in showbiz this year have given money to Republicans.

Who'd have thunk it?

On the other hand, for those of you that follow Twitter, you might recall actor Ken Wahl predicting just last week that many "closeted" conservatives in Hollywood are going to soon feel emboldened to reveal themselves.

Is this a sign of that coming to fruition?

Stay tuned.
