    Is Amazon.com getting paid to do this?U.S. federal law prohibits us from donating services to any or all presidential campaigns, so we are charging the campaigns our usual and normal Amazon.com Payments fee ($0.25 per contribution and 2.5% of the contribution amount).

    We've also decided that we'll eventually contribute the aggregate amount we're paid in fees to Kids Voting USA, a nonprofit, nonpartisan, national organization that works with schools and communities to enhance civics education and provide youth an authentic voting experience.

    Yeah, they've been running that since well before the Dean Scream brought Howard down.

    current donation stats:
    $32,875.00 Bush
    $163,102.10 Kerry

    Guess there's no dangling chads at Amazon, that's quite a margin tween the two.

    $300 LaRouche Jr., Lyndon H.
    LOL, well, at least Lydon can get a couple new bongs and some rolling papers with this scratch.
