PayPal Head Donated $2.6 Million to Ron Paul SuperPAC


In today's edition of "move your money": Peter Thiel, the co-founder of PayPal, has donated $2.6 million to Ron Paul since December via the Super PAC Endorse Liberty.Politico:

He’s the largest contributor to the super PAC, which reported bringing in $2.4 million in January in addition to its late December haul of $1 million, according to the reports filed with the Federal Election Commission.

In addition, PayPal's Luke Nosek has donated $10,000 to the Super PAC. 

PayPal's conservative leanings are no secret. In 2010, the company froze Wikileaks' account, seriously curbing the whistleblowers' ability to collect donations. PayPal claimed Wikileaks was violating its rules against "illegal activity." And in the past, Thiel has donated large chunks of money to right-wing video stuntman James O'Keefe, while other alumni have published right-wing books. Read more at Politico.
