Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi got quite a few “likes” in her campaign fundraising in December, including one from the social media giant, Facebook.
The Silicon Valley company chipped in $5,000 to Bondi’s “And Justice for All” on Dec. 13, which is an electioneering communications organization that raised $81,000 in December.
The political leanings of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg are much discussed among the chattering classes. Any 29-year-old with a $25.8 billion fortune would get people guessing about what causes he’ll get behind over the next 50 years.
Does he lean left or right? Registered to vote in Santa Clara County, he doesn’t give a party preference. Last year, he contributed to the campaigns of Florida’s Republican U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, as well as Sen. Orrin Hatch of R-Utah and threw a fundraiser for Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, before “Bridgeghazi”. But he also contributed to Sen. Charles Schumer, D-New York, and Sen. Cory Booker, D-New Jersey.
He also outlined some of his views in an April op-ed in the Washington Post, where he said he supported comprehensive immigration reform, higher school standards, and investment breakthroughs in scientific research.
Who knows why Facebook contributed to Bondi’s committee.
