Amazon aids Nevada group
The Nevada Policy Research Institute is raising funds through Amazon.com. According to a link posted at the NPRI website, “Amazon will donate 0.5 percent of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to Nevada Policy Research Institute whenever you shop on AmazonSmile.” It provides instructions on how to accomplish the kickback to the conservative Nevada group.
NPRI already receives funding from the Koch-affiliated State Policy Network.
There has been considerable online speculation about the politics of Amazon. In 2012, Amazon dropped its financial support of the right wing American Legislative Exchange Council, which supported “stand your ground” gun laws, voter suppression efforts and climate change denial, though it has softened its climate stance. Amazon acted after numerous other corporations dropped ALEC.
