So, will someone break the news to One Million Moms that they have to give up computers. . .or at least anything running Windows? That is right, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates along with CEO Steve Ballmer are set to donate some $100,000 to supporting marriage equality in the state of Washington. Microsoft is known mostly for their Windows line of products.
According to Zack Silk, the campaign manager for Washington United for Marriage, the checks were cut this past Friday.
Microsoft was one of the companies that signaled their support for the marriage equality law that was signed by Governor Chris Gregoire back in February. They have also joined with some 70 other companies to file and amicus brief seeking to put an end to the Defense of Marriage Act.
