Too bad it’s only chump change compared to what George Soros and Tom Steyer are spending on Democrats.

So when will Seattle’s Liberal backlash start the boycott of all Paul Allen enterprises? Will Kshama be calling for protesters to block the roads to the first Seahawk home game?

He must realize the only free speech allowed in Seattle is that the left agrees with.

Democrat twitter-slamming and screaming for boycotts begin in 3… 2.. 1… The left will boycott the Seahawks while praising the players who take a knee. Just watch and see.

Seattle Times:

Billionaire Seahawks owner and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen this year has made his largest-ever foray into congressional politics, donating $100,000 to a group aiming to keep Republicans in control of the U.S. House of Representatives.

The June 14 donation, disclosed in mid-July, went to Protect the House, a committee headed by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. It’s the biggest check Allen has ever sent to a federal political candidate or committee, according to a review of Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings.

Protect the House is a joint fundraising committee, a type of group that allows wealthy donors to make a single large contribution which is then divided up among multiple candidates and political-action committees (PACs) across the country.

FEC records show the largest chunk of Allen’s $100,000 was sent to the National Republican Campaign Committee (NRCC), which received $33,900. An additional $5,000 went to the Great America Committee, a PAC created by Vice President Mike Pence. More than a dozen other congressional Republicans from Iowa to New York received about $2,600.

Overall in the 2017-18 election cycle, Allen has donated $173,500 to Republican congressional candidates and PACs compared with $45,900 to Democratic candidates and PACs, FEC records show.

The GOP tilt represents somewhat of a turnabout from Allen’s past political giving on the federal level, which has tended to be more bipartisan — and even Democratic-leaning in most years. In the 2016 election cycle, he donated $74,500 to federal Democratic candidates compared with $52,400 to Republicans.

Allen’s representatives declined to discuss the reasons for the shift in his political donations or what policies of the House Republicans he appreciates this year. More

He’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing. You can bet this is some kind of deal the RINOs are plotting against President Trump and his MAGA agenda.
