Submission + - Amazon Spends $350k on Seattle Mayor's Race (

reifman writes: Until this summer, Amazon had never contributed more than $15k to a city political campaign in Seattle, but this year's different. The company is a lead funder in the Seattle Chamber of Commerce's PAC which dropped $525,000 Monday on Jenny Durkan's PAC, the centrist business candidate. Her opponent Cary Moon is an advocate for affordable housing, which complicates Amazon's growth, and city-owned community broadband. Comcast and Century Link joined Amazon contributing $25k and $82.5k respectively to the Chamber's PAC. Amazon's $350k spend represents .00014 of its CY 2016 net profit.
