Microsoft said its political action committee will bar all donations to Republican lawmakers who refused to certify Joe Biden’s election win …
The tech giant said on Friday that it will modify a policy change introduced last month freezing all political contributions, retaining the ban for GOP election skeptics, as well as those with affiliated organizations echoing claims of widespread voter fraud, until at least 2022.
Microsoft joined a litany of corporate behemoths in halting donations to the same group of Republican lawmakers in the wake of the January 6 riot on Capitol Hill …. Among those to cut off the money spigot were financial institutions like Citibank, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, the State Street Corporation, Commerce Bank and Mastercard. Companies ranging from Amazon, Marriott, Nike, the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, AT&T and Google also joined the pile-on.
