Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer Both Donate $100K To Washington States Fight For Same Sex Marriage

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and CEO Steve Ballmer are are using their respective fortunes to help LGBT equality by each donating $100,000  to support Washington state’s campaign to uphold it’s new gay marriage law.

That law, which was passed by the Legislature and signed by Gov. Chris Gregoire  in February, faces a referendum vote to repeal it in November

As of this writing  51% of voters in Washington state told Public Policy Polling they support same-sex marriage. Only  42% said they oppose it.

There’s no word if the NOM, One Million Moms or any other anti-gay group intends to boycott Microsoft, throw thier computers out of the window and get off the Internet forever.  (I can dream can’t I?)
