Facebook Political Action Committee Favors GOP
The technology sector tends to favor the Democratic Party when it comes to political contributions, but Facebook’s political-action committee doled out more to Republicans during the first quarter of 2012.
Mashable reported that fbPAC, which was formed last September, contributed $65,000 to Republicans, including Speaker of the House John Boehner (Ohio) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.), and $53,500 to Democrats, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.).
In contrast, Mashable reported that Microsoft contributed $694,284 to Democrats and $477,706 to Republicans via its PAC during the first quarter, and those numbers for Google were $101,800 and $100,000, respectively.
Members of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees were also on Facebook’s contribution list, according to Mashable, which doesn’t come as much of a surprise, given how much time the social network has spent in courtrooms of late.AllFacebook
