Google on Monday announced that its political action committee won’t make any donations during this election cycle to members of Congress who voted against certifying the 2020 presidential election.

“Following that review, the NetPAC board has decided that it will not be making any contributions this cycle to any member of Congress who voted against certification of the election results,” a Google spokesperson said in a statement to Axios and other news outlets.

Other Big Tech firms such as Microsoft and Facebook have also paused political donations to candidates.

“Microsoft confirmed publicly today, as it announced internally on Jan. 8, that it has halted all donations of its PAC while it reviews whether to suspend further donations to individuals who voted against certification of the Electoral College,” Microsoft wrote in a blog post on Jan. 23. “The company added that it will announce its decision by Feb. 15 after completing discussions with its employees. As Microsoft executives have said internally to employees, this is not a normal year. The company believes that opposition to the Electoral College undermined American democracy and should have consequences.”

Facebook also said it is “pausing all of our PAC contributions for at least the current quarter, while we review our policies,” according to a statement sent to news outlets earlier this month.
