Corporate PACs like Intel, AT&T and Cigna get back on the GOP sedition train

Intel provided a statement to Legum in which the company said its policy of not directly contributing to sedition “still applies”, and it divides its donations “also among Republicans and Democrats, including individual candidates, campaign committees and governing associations.” So apparently Intel is committed to supporting an entire sedition caucus, even though it claims not to directly support sedition. Patriotism clearly runs deep.

AT & T’s corporate PAC also found a loophole in its initial commitment to “suspend contributions” to members of Congress who voted against certification. The AT&T PAC has never said it was suspending donations to PACs led by GOP secessionists. So, on February 22, the AT&T PAC donated $ 5,000 to the House Conservatives Fund, a Republican leadership PAC led by the GOP seditionist representative. Mike Johnson of Louisiana. Johnson also signed an amicus brief pushing the Supreme Court to strike down millions of votes in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin. Ah, well – no direct contributions to sedition, just their PAC.

On January 13, Cigna said her PAC would be stop supporting “any elected official who has encouraged or supported violence, or otherwise prevented a peaceful transition of power,” the company said in a statement. “There is never any justification for the violence or the kind of destruction that occurred on the United States Capitol last week – a building that is a powerful symbol of the very democracy that makes our nation strong.” Indeed.

Then, on February 4, CignaPAC donated $ 15,000 to the National Republican Senate Committee (NRSC), which is currently chaired by GOP Seditionist Senator, Senator Rick Scott of Florida. Scott was one of the upper house’s main sources of election disinformation, calling in late November for “major reforms” across the country “to protect against fraud” that no one has ever proven to exist. . CignaPAC also donated $ 15,000 at the end of February to the NRCC, the campaign arm of GOP’s House. Cigna says she still refuses to support “any elected official who encouraged or supported violence on January 6, “to say nothing of their initial commitment against supporting those who” otherwise prevented a peaceful transition of power. “

Only one party in the two-party system in that country has spent more than a month systematically stoking mistrust of election results without being able to produce any evidence of electoral fraud. Only one party in this country’s two-party system now works systematically to deprive voters it doesn’t like. Only one party in this nation’s two-party system consistently works to undermine American democracy – Intel, AT&T, and Cigna now enthusiastically support this Republican party. Other corporate PACs will follow soon – that’s one way to lead.
