Corporate money keeps flowing to the Sedition Caucus

After the traitorous Capitol insurrection on January 6th, two hundred corporations and industry groups said they would pause or altogether stop making political contributions to the 147 seditious members of Congress who voted against certifying the election and continue to propagate Trump’s Big Lie that led to the violent attack. In the months since the brutal attack, these corporate and industry interests have had to choose whether to do their part to uphold our democracy by turning off the flow of corporate donations to these members of the Sedition Caucus, or to continue to support them in order to seek political influence.

Many have failed this test, some reneging on a promise to change their giving while others made no commitment and are giving like nothing ever happened.

Here’s a list of the anti-democratic evil corperados, think about this next time you have a choice where to spend your money.
