It may no longer be in the way of continuing his 23-year committment to girlfriend Susan Sarandon, but the liberal star has, strangely, given some dough to Republicans. And to Minnesota’s right-wing, controversial, and some-say-spotlight-seeking Rep. Michele Bachmann at that.

Loyal Dems would undoubtedly be gobsmacked to learn that, if Federal Election Commission records are to be believed, Robbins has not only donated regularly to Democratic candidates over the past 18 years, he also has written checks to conservative Republicans. In the 2006 election cycle, according to public records, the actor gave $5,000 to 10 Republican candidates for the House and Senate—including, most shocking of all, Minnesota’s resident wingnut, Rep. Michele Bachmann.
Not sure what to make, if anything, of that.
