Facebook has donated $190,000 to the campaigns and political-action committees of senators questioning one of its executives Thursday, according to data from the Federal Election Commission.

All but one member of the 12-person Subcommittee on Consumer Protection, Product Safety, and Data Security has received money from the social-media behemoth, which sent its global head of safety, Antigone Davis, to Capitol Hill as controversy swirls around a series of investigations in the Wall Street Journal.

The leading recipient of donations on the panel is Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii). His campaign and Hawaii PAC have accepted $35,000 from Facebook. Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) is a close second, coming in at $31,500.
