Tell Google: Don’t Support Racist Representatives!

    1. Sponsored by

Google’s political action committee (PAC) made a contribution to support the 2010 reelection of Representative Steve King (R-IA). 

And just the other day Rep. Steve King, in his 2012 reelection bid, analogized that letting specific groups of immigrants in to the U.S. was similar to breeding dogs.  Sadly, this was not the first or second or even third time Rep. King has made sweeping, racist remarks against minority communities in the U.S.  It’s a habit of his, and one that Google’s financial support helps to perpetuate.

There are more than 2,000 immigrant business owners in Iowa – and Google co-founder Sergey Brin is himself an immigrant from the former Soviet Union.  So how can Google justify campaign contributions to an elected official that espouses racism and hate?

Tell Google to follow their own motto – “don’t be evil” – and demand that their PAC not give a penny to Representative Steve King in the 2012 election cycle.

      Steve King is one of the most hate-filled of the Rightwingnuts in Congress. Google, how can you support hatred?

      I am a former resident of Burlington, IA. Google, you've made a terrible mistake but you can correct it. Please withdraw your financial support and publicly distance yourself from the ideas and political career of Representative Steve King (R-IA).
