These companies still give money to lawmakers who voted to overturn Biden’s election … for Trump


They still love me…

After a mob of Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol on January 6 to try and prevent Congress from certifying Biden’s win, many top US companies scrambled to cut ties with the 147 GOP lawmakers who voted against the results…

Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, founder of Yale’s Chief Executive Leadership Institute, told Axios in March the companies that halted political donations are unlikely to lift this ban any time soon. However, recent Federal Election Commission filings show that some companies are still giving to these lawmakers…

Here are the companies that have still been funding (some or all of) these 147 objectors, according to Federal Election Commission data up to March 31:

Toyota
Cigna
Koch Industries
National Association of Realtors
JetBlue
Jones Walker
Cubic Corporation
LKQ Corporation
Sierra Nevada Corporation

Please read the article. It explains some of the ways many corporations and companies still get around the boycott of these hypocrite politicians … without handing the money directly over to them

    (Jan 6, 2021): Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, one of the most powerful Republicans on Capitol Hill, denounced Republican efforts to use the tallying of Electoral College votes as a last-ditch effort to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
    During a speech from the Senate floor, McConnell told his colleagues that his vote on Wednesday would be “the most important vote I have ever cast,” adding that if Trump’s allies were successful in overturning the results of the election, “it would damage our republic forever.”
    “If this election were overturned by mere allegations from the losing side, our democracy would enter a death spiral,” McConnell said. “We’d never see our country accept an election again.” https://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/election-2020/mcconnell-if-congress-overturns-election-results-it-would-send-democracy-into-death-spiral

      “The making of a myth : Russell J. Ramsland Jr. sold everything from Tex-Mex food to light-therapy technology. Then he sold the story that the 2020 election was stolen from Trump.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/interactive/2021/trump-election-fraud-texas-businessman-ramsland-asog/
      “The enduring myth that the 2020 election was rigged was not one claim by one person. It was many claims stacked one atop the other, repeated by a phalanx of Trump allies. This is the previously unreported origin story of a core set of those claims, ideas that were advanced not by renowned experts or by insiders who had knowledge of flawed voting systems but by Ramsland and fellow conservative activists as they pushed a fledgling company, Allied Security Operations Group, into a quixotic attempt to find evidence of widespread fraud where none existed.
      …The idea that the election was stolen took root and remains persuasive to millions of Americans. Although Trump’s own Department of Homeland Security called the election the “most secure in American history,” polls have consistently shown that about one-third of Americans — including a majority of Republicans — believe that Trump lost because of fraud.
      The fraud claims have undermined faith in the electoral process, been cited as a motivation for legislation to curtail access to polls in dozens of states and spurred the companies Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic to file billion-dollar lawsuits. Ultimately, the conspiracy-mongering helped inspire the storming of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.”

    JPMorgan Chase & Co will resume making political donations to United States lawmakers but will not give to Republican members of Congress who voted to overturn President Joe Biden’s election victory, according to an internal memo on Friday seen by Reuters news agency. https://www.aljazeera.com/economy/2021/6/4/jpmorgan-freezes-donations-to-republicans-who-contested-election The pause will last through the 2021-2022 election cycle, which includes November’s midterm elections.

    “Koch Latino group endorses Youngkin for Virginia governor” https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/576957-koch-latino-group-endorses-youngkin-for-virginia-governor
    “The Libre Initiative, part of mega-donor Charles Koch’s political network, is an advocacy group that promotes free-market ideas among U.S. Hispanics.”
    “The Libre Initiative-Virginia is eager to mobilize its grassroots army to connect more Latinos in Virginia to Glenn Youngkin’s vision for the future of Virginia—a place where every person has the freedom and ability to afford and achieve their American Dream,” said Michael Monrroy, coalitions director for The Libre Initiative-Virginia.
    Youngkin, a former Carslyle Group co-CEO, has walked a fine line between running as an avid supporter of former President Trump and disavowing the more radical elements of Trumpism.

    “What Fortune 500 Companies Said After Jan. 6 vs. What They Did
    A new ProPublica app tracks corporate contributions to election deniers. From GE to Boeing, here are some of the behemoths that proclaimed that they were suspending donations — then resumed giving to the very politicians they had sworn off.” https://www.propublica.org/article/companies-funding-election-deniers-after-january-6
    At least 228 Fortune 500 companies have provided financial support to members of Congress who sought to invalidate the 2020 presidential election results. Together, the companies have poured a total of nearly $13.2 million into those politicians’ war chests.

  6. Update says:

    “Some of the best-known corporations in the US, including AT&T, Boeing, Delta Air Lines and the Home Depot, collectively poured more than $8m into supporting election deniers running for US House and Senate seats in this month’s midterm elections.
    A study by the non-partisan government watchdog organization Accountable.US, based on the latest filings to the Federal Election Commission, reveals the extent to which big corporations were prepared to back Republican nominees despite their open peddling of false claims undermining confidence in democracy. Though many were ultimately unsuccessful in their election bids, the candidates included several prominent advocates of Donald Trump’s lie that the 2020 presidential election had been stolen from him.
    At the top of the list of 20 corporations backing election deniers through their political action committees (Pacs) is a familiar name in the world of rightwing agitating – Koch Industries. According to the Accountable.US review, the Koch energy conglomerate spent $771,000 through its Pac on Republican candidates with a track record of casting doubt on elections.” https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2022/nov/23/us-corporations-donate-midterm-campaigns-election-deniers
