Big Tech digs into deep, secretive political pockets

According to a Fast Company report “Tech giants Amazon, Facebook, and Google have spent $33 million on Washington lobbying efforts so far this year, and their political action committees have donated $900,000 to federal candidates this election cycle. The companies have also used stealthier methods of influence, pouring money into dozens of influential conservative and centrist think tanks and nonprofits. Many of the organizations don’t disclose their donors. Although Facebook, Google, and Amazon voluntarily disclose their contributions to nonprofits, they don’t say how much they’ve donated.”
