The Harris Poll - The Voters

The conflict the voter is best known for is listed first. I performed searches via Google and tried as best as I could, but I realize that this list may have missed something. If something appears current, I'll try to note it as such, but everything else is the voter's former position. If I've incorrectly listed something, please let me know in comments and I'll delete it as soon as possible. This isn't my job, so I don't have the time to phone everyone on this list. Also, I know that lots of these guys have done things I haven't listed, like Terry Bradshaw's 10-10-220 commercials. Since that stuff isn't a direct conflict with one of the schools the poll is monitoring, it doesn't matter. If I've missed something that's a conflict (player, covered, or worked for), let me know in comments and I'll add it.
