Fannie Mae is the common name for the Federal National Mortgage Association (FNMA).  Fannie Mae is a company that deals with the secondary mortgage market. It is a New Deal agency founded by the U.S. government to provide increased liquidity for mortgages. The company was bailed out by the US Government in 2008 (along with Freddie Mac) after making billions in loans available to borrowers with demonstratively poor credit histories.
The top three recipients of campaign contributions from Fannie Mae over the last two decades were all Democrats. 
No.1 Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd No.2 Illinois Senator Barack Obama No.3 Massachusetts Senator John Kerry
