Corporations gave $ 10 million to 138 Republican lawmakers who voted to turn the election around.
CREW analyzed the data and found:
SIn the attack, 477 corporations and industry groups donated more than $ 10 million to 138 members of Congress who voted not to certify the 2020 election results, as well as the main Republican Party committees that support these members – the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) and the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC). This amount includes $ 2,845,000 from companies that originally pledged to stop or interrupt their political donations to reevaluate their policies after the uprising, and $ 1,005,000 of that amount went directly to members of the Sedition Caucus’ campaigns and leadership -PACs went.
Boeing ($ 274,000), American Crystal Sugar ($ 230,000), Koch Industries ($ 180,500), General Dynamics Corporation ($ 174,500) and Lockheed Martin ($ 150,500) are the major corporate donors to rebellious political groups and campaigns. These five donors donated $ 502,000 to insurrectionary campaigns and PACs for leadership.
Republicans are being rewarded by some corporations for attacking democracy.
There is no other way to look at it. Corporate America rewards Republicans for trying to overthrow the election. The punishment of the sedition caucus does not exist. The best hope that the American people, because they have held these members of Congress accountable, is that the 1/6 committee starts naming and the Department of Justice is forced to act.
Corporations spend millions upon millions of dollars annually on public relations to make themselves look like good corporate citizens, but a good citizen does not reward those who tried to overthrow an election and overthrow the government.
Boeing, Lockheed Martin, General Motors, Cigna, American Airlines and Aflac are all corporations that have broken their promise and continue to donate to domestic terror-supporting Republicans.
These corporations need to hear from the American people and understand that they will be punished for financing the attack on democracy.
