As Twitchy reported, Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich stepped down last week after dating site OKCupid urged a boycott of Mozilla’s Firefox browser. Eich’s crime? Donating $1,000 to the campaign for California’s Proposition 8 back in 2008.
Mother Jones is reporting Monday, however, that OKCupid CEO Sam Yagan once donated $500 to a candidate who voted for a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.
OkCupid’s co-founder and CEO Sam Yagan once donated to an anti-gay candidate. (Yagan is also CEO of Match.com.) Specifically, Yagan donated $500 to Rep. Chris Cannon (R-Utah) in 2004, reports Uncrunched. During his time as congressman from 1997 to 2009, Cannon voted for a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage, against a ban on sexual-orientation based job discrimination, and for prohibition of gay adoptions.
He’s also voted for numerous anti-choice measures, earning a 0 percent rating from NARAL Pro Choice America.

@TheRickWilson If we had to atone for the sins of the candidates we donated to, there'd be a worldwide shortage of rosary beads.
