Who in Oregon is Donating to Referendum 71 in Washington


With one week to go until Washington voters decide whether to retain their state's domestic partnership rights for same-sex couples, we were curious which Oregonians and Oregon companies are donating their cash to the campaign across the river.

Washington Families Standing Together, the group urging a yes vote Nov. 3 on Referendum 71 to retain domestic partnership, has collected more than $1.3 millon in cash, only about 1 percent of which came from Oregon.

Still, it's worth noting that the biggest donation from Oregon for came Oct. 14 when Nike contributed $5,000. Some of the other Oregon donors, according to Washington's user-friendly Public Disclosure Commission site, include Basic Rights Oregon ($2,500), Fat Cobra adult video stores owner Patrick Lanagan ($1,000), and state Rep. Tina Kotek (D-Portland) ($100).
