Google contributes thousands to conservatives
from USA Today looks at how while 98 percent of Google employee money went to
Democrats in the last election, the company-controlled Google NetPAC gave 61
percent of its contributions to conservative candidates. Then again, donations
of $31,000 were tiny and the "company" PAC has donations that come almost
entirely from only seven employees, hardly feeling that much like a real company
With the Democrats in control of congress, the company PAC might now give
them a bigger share, said one analyst. What’s Google say?
Google declined to discuss any changes in future strategy. In a statement,
it said it supports politicians "on both sides of the aisle who share our goal
of preserving and promoting the Internet as a free and open platform."
