Should 'giving away' below be changed into 'giving back'?


Bob Weinstein wrote Ms. Bloom a disapproving email on Friday morning, shortly before she appeared on “Good Morning America.” He pointed out that Democratic politicians were giving away money that Mr. Weinstein had donated to them, women’s rights organizations were calling for him to be fired and actors and actresses were openly stating how appalled they were. “It is my opinion, that u are giving your client poor counsel,” he wrote.

I don't think so. As far as I know, Mr. Weinstein donated to a lot of politicians. The politicians are not giving back the money to him. They are most likely donating it to different places, so they are giving it away instead of giving it back.
