Hold corporations accountable

After Jan. 6, plenty of this country’s best known companies pledged to put a “pause” on donating to any political party or to the 147 Republican representatives and senators who voted to overturn the 2020 election of Pres. Joe. Biden.

The “pause” didn’t last long. According to Bloomberg News, on May 3, Boeing’s political action committee resumed donations to Republicans who voted to overturn the election.

Here’s the first entry in a list of corporations that have donated to Republicans who voted to overthrow the 2020 election and how to contact them:

Hallmark Cards   The maker of greeting cards was very specific in the message it wants to send U.S. Senators Josh Hawley and Roger Marshall: Give us our money back. The Kansas City, Missouri-based company said it’s seeking reimbursement for the $7,000 it donated to Hawley, of Missouri, and the $5,000 it gave newly elected Marshall, of Kansas, over the last two years.
