    Amazon Founder Pledges $2.5 Mil. in Support of Gay Marriage

    Jeff Bezos, the billionaire founder of Amazon.com, and his wife, MacKenzie, have agreed to donate $2.5 million to help pass a same-sex marriage referendum in Washington State, instantly becoming among the largest financial backers of gay marriage rights in the country.
    With the gift, the couple have doubled the money available to the proponents of Referendum 74, which would legalize same-sex marriage in the state by affirming a law that passed the Legislature this year. Courts or lawmakers have declared gay marriage legal in six other states, but backers of such measures have never succeeded at the ballot box.

    That's it, I'm not taking advantage of their amazing low prices and free shipping anymore! And who cares if they're one of the best companies to work for in the country!

    Be back in a bit. Craving a chicken sammich.

    It's a bummer that so much public policy gets decided based on which side has the more enthusiastic millionaires and billionaires. I'm happy in this case because I support gay marriage but a rich guy should not have to donate $2.5 million for a liberal state like Washington to pass such a law. The people there are inclined to support it, therefore it should pass.

    Would that it were that easy.
