Which corporations are still giving to the Congress members who support the Big Lie and refuse to certify the results of the Presidential Election


All told, as of this week, corporations and industry groups gave almost $32 million to the House and Senate members who voted to overturn the election and to the G.O.P. committees focused on the party’s congressional campaigns (https://www.nytimes.com/2022/06/15/opinion/jan6-companies-donate.html?campaign_id=39&emc=edit_ty_20220616&instance_id=64191&nl=opinion-today&regi_id=68806438&segment_id=95288&te=1&user_id=5a6878c1f5495862116143770dc11a4d. 

The top 10 companies that gave money to Congressional members that continue to support the Big Lie and refuse to certify the results, according to CREW’s analysis of campaign finance disclosures, are Koch Industries, Boeing, Home Depot, Valero Energy, Lockheed Martin, UPS, Raytheon, Marathon Petroleum, General Motors and FedEx. All of those companies, with the exception of Koch Industries and FedEx, once said they’d refrain from donating to politicians who voted to reject the election results. 

Kudos aplenty to the 85 corporations that stuck to their guns and still refuse to fund the seditious, including Nike, PepsiCo, Lyft, Cisco, Prudential, Marriott, Target and Zillow. That’s what responsible corporate citizenship looks like. It’s also patriotic.

Yes we must vote, especially this November and in 2024, but we can also vote with our wallets.
