Troubled online giant Yahoo has tapped a leading Democratic fundraiser in an attempt to put the company back on the right track.

Marissa Mayer, 37, was lured from rival Google on Monday to head up the Silicon Valley company.

Mayer has given large amounts to President Barack Obama's campaigns, Politico reported. Last year she gave $35,800 to his 'Victory Fund.' She also contributed $30,800 to the Democratic National Committee, a year after giving two separate $30,400 payments to the same cause.

Politico said Mayer, who has worked at Google since 1999 when she was taken on as its 20th employee, bundled a six-figure sum for the Obama campaign last year and held a fundraiser at her home in 2010.

Mayer is the person behind successful Google products including Gmail, Google News, and Google Maps.
