Notably, Heritage Action received $500,000 from the Koch-funded and Koch-operative staffed Freedom Partners in 2012. It is not yet known how much Heritage Action received in 2013 from sources other than Google.
Perhaps surprisingly, Google has a history of supporting Cruz. Via its Political Action Committee – Google Inc. Net PAC – the PAC provided the “Ted Cruz for Senate” campaign with a $10,000 contribution in 2012. Additionally, despite being five years out from the freshman senator’s next election, Google’s PAC has already made a $2,500 contribution to the Cruz reelection campaign for 2018, the largest amount that the PAC has given so far to any Senate candidate running that election year, according to disclosures made by Google.
Good luck with that “Don’t be evil” thing you like to brag about, Google. When you’re donating to the same radical-right shitbags who orchestrated the government shutdown and openly want to keep our poorer citizens from getting healthcare, you’re being evil — simple as that. It’s a shame, too, because I love their products. Maybe it’s time to re-evaluate how much I really need them.
