Microsoft Puts Another $600K Into Anti-Eyman Campaign

By Erica C. Barnett October 11, 2011

A little early Campaign Fizz today: Microsoft, which has already contributed $100,000 to the "No on 1125" campaign (opposing Tim Eyman's anti-tolling, anti-light rail Initiative 1125), gave another $600,000 to the campaign, known as Keep Washington Rolling, on Friday. The Microsoft contribution brings the campaign to $1.2 million.

Eyman's own campaign, Voters Want More Choices, has reported a total of about $1.4 million in contributions, of which about $1.2 million came from Bellevue megadeveloper and light rail opponent Kemper Freeman.

I-1125 would prevent the state tolling commission from setting tolls, prohibit light rail on I-90 and jeopardize funding for SR-520 by banning variable tolling.
