On 2nd October 2021, Ethical Consumer viewed the entry for Alphabet Inc. on the Opensecrets.org website, which was published in the USA by the Centre for Responsive Politics. This stated that in 2020 the company and its employees had made $27,433,160 in political donations. 93.85% of this went to Democrats and 6.15% was given to Republicans. It also spent $8,850,000 on lobbying in 2020.
NOTE: OpenSecrets states: “The organization itself did not donate, rather the money came from the organization's PACs, their individual members or employees or owners, and those individuals' immediate family members. Organizations themselves cannot contribute to candidates and party committees. Totals include subsidiaries and affiliates.”
81 out of 97 Alphabet Inc lobbyists in 2020 had previously held government jobs.
