Always a cool thing to see super rich folks using their fortunes to help others!
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Jeff Bezos and his family are pushing $10 million into a political action committee focused on getting more veterans elected to Congress.
The advocacy group 'With Honor' has a goal of raising $30 million before November “to lower the financial barriers to entry for principled veterans from both parties.”
The Bezos family said the donation supports their idea of building a “cross-partisan coalition” of lawmakers who can upend the partisan infighting in national politics today.
This isn't the first time Bezos made a politically charged gift...in 2012 he made a $2.5 million donation to Washington United for Marriage, a coalition to uphold the same-sex marriage law.
