JOHN DOERR, BILLIONAIRE LOBBYIST
"John Doerr, 58, seized the moment. For more than a decade, Doerr, a Silicon Valley venture capitalist, has been going to Washington as an ambassador from the high-tech industry, donating along with his wife about $800,000 to Democrats since 2000 and advancing ideas in education, worker-visa and shareholder-litigation policies," Time's Michael Scherer reports. "In the past few years, however, Doerr's interests in Beltway policies deepened, as he bet hundreds of millions of dollars in private capital on green-energy start-ups, many of which were seeking federal subsidies and regulatory aid."
