+ - Bill Gates funds anti-net neutrality politicians

Submitted by

Ditesh writes "Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates privately funded a campaign by a United States Congressman opposed to net neutrality, according to data in the campaign finance database and the US House of Representatives voting record. According the records, Bill Gates donated the maximum allowed US$2,000 to Republican House Representative David Dreier of California, a staunch opponent of net neutrality who brought down the Democrat Edward Markey Net Neutrality Act of 2006."
