Amazon CEO gives $2.5 million to same-sex campaign

| No Comments

Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos announced Friday their plans to donate $2.5 million to a campaign defending Washington's same-sex marriage law, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

The Chronicle also reports the money will support a defense to a challenge to the existing law, while a referendum seeks to overturn the law, signed in February, remains on hold.

The Washington Post reported the Washington United for marriage has now raised over $5 million for the Referendum 74 campaign.

Referendum 74 is certified for a November ballot this year, and a "yes" vote to the referendum will uphold the law and a "no" will overturn it.
