Google: No more donations for GOP lawmakers who voted against Biden certification

Google will not donate money to lawmakers who voted against the certification of President Joe Biden's election win.

Congress certified Biden's electoral victory just hours after then-President Donald Trump's supporters violently stormed the U.S. Capitol in an effort to disrupt the constitutional proceeding, and the tech giant has announced that no lawmakers who voted against the certification will be eligible for donations from its political action committee, reported Axios.

"After the disturbing events at the Capitol, NetPAC paused all contributions while undertaking a review," said Google spokesman José Castañeda. "Following that review, the NetPAC board has decided that it will not be making any contributions this cycle to any member of Congress who voted against certification of the election results."

Some of the lawmakers who voted against certification include Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Tommy Tuberville (R-AL).

2. "This cycle"

So, since none of those Senators are up for re-election during "this cycle" what does that really mean. Nothing!

Nice to see that they can get free PR for doing the right thing and not have any impact on these clowns still owing them favors. They haven't said "We will NEVER give to these clowns again." Just for this cycle.

Grifters gonna grift. Google needs to make certain that they have enough votes to kill any attempt to make them pay tehir fair share of taxes.

3. All House members are up for re-election

This will effect the House more, this is for 2022.

This puts very real pressure on Republicans. There is an entire election industry that relies on campaign contributions to keep functioning year round.

4. We've got to hold them to their word.

What they say is one thing, what they do is another.
