The tech giant Microsoft has announced that the company spends all donations for the upcoming 2022 election, the state officials, and the organizations that voted to object to voters’ certification in the 2020 election or supported the election.
Also, the company temporarily suspended all political support after the January 6th attack on the Capitol, with the giant company taking the time to determine the Electoral College certification.
Microsoft also announced a new program called the Democracy Forward Initiative.
It’s designed mainly for the donation organizations that impact the campaign and protect voting rights instead of supporting politicians.
Ultimately, the company also announced a change in its PAC name, which was earlier known as the Microsoft Political Action Committee. Now the group called it Microsoft Corporation Stakeholders Voluntary PAC.
The tech giant Microsoft isn’t only the major tech company to decide to fund the members of congress. Google also made a similar announcement at the end of January.
Other tech companies are also pressing to pause on it, as Amazon, AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, Dell have endlessly suspended any donations to electoral objectors.
