The Internet Accountability Project (IAP) released a report showing big tech employees and corporate PACs contributed more than 12 times the money to Democrats than Republicans in 2020.
The IAP, whose mission it is to “rein in big tech before it’s too late,” discovered employees of Facebook and Twitter, compounded with their PAC donations, have contributed over $5.5 million to Democrats while contributing less than $435,000 to Republicans, a ratio of 12 to one.
A portion of the money donated to Democrats as a whole includes $72,838 to Democrats on the House Oversight Committee. Meanwhile, the Republicans who sit on the committee have only received $1,950. In terms of percentage, the committee Democrats have received 97.39 percent of total contributions compared to Republicans’ 2.61 percent. Twitter employees gave zero money to Republicans on the Oversight Committee.
Big tech’s collaboration with House Democrats has not gone unnoticed.
