Google became the latest corporate giant to financially cut off members of Congress who voted against certifying the presidential election results this month.
The Silicon Valley titan announced the decision after pausing all contributions from its political action committee, NetPAC, while it reviewed its policies in the wake of the Capitol riots.
“Following that review, the NetPAC board has decided that it will not be making any contributions this cycle to any member of Congress who voted against certification of the election results,” a Google spokesperson told The Post in a statement Tuesday.
Google is among a growing number of major American companies to stop donating to those lawmakers or pause political donations altogether after supporters of then-President Donald Trump ransacked the Capitol on Jan. 6, forcing Congress to delay the sealing of President Biden’s victory for hours.
After the proceedings resumed, eight senators and 139 House members — all Republicans — supported objections to counting the electoral votes from Pennsylvania, Arizona or both.
Google’s announcement came about two weeks after rival Amazon said it would stop giving to the lawmakers who voted to overturn the election results, according to Reuters.
Fellow tech giants Facebook and Microsoft also halted political donations earlier this month while undertaking reviews of their policies. Microsoft has it would decide by Feb. 15 whether to cut off the reps who voted against the election certification, according to Axios, which first reported Google’s decision Monday.
Google’s NetPAC shelled out nearly $2 million in political contributions to candidates from both parties and other political action committees in 2019 and 2020, Federal Election Commission data show.
Some of those prior contributions went to Republicans who voted against certifying the election results, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and California Rep. Devin Nunes, the data show.
