Amazon Spends $1.45m to Buy Votes in One City

Councillor Kshama Sawant is angered by Amazon trying to buy the election on Seattle City Council with $1.45m spent to swing the election.

She claims that Amazon and Jeff Bezos are using Seattle as a test to see how they can influence moving politics to the right. Big corporations vs socialism are becoming a real issue.

Corporate activity in elections is rife, despite there having been laws to try and prevent it over the years.
