Big corporations continue their attack on Missouri Senator Josh Hawley, following his decision to reject the electoral college votes due to fraud in the election.
In addition to Hallmark who reported earlier this week, Ameren Missouri, health care IT firm Cerner Corp and Edward Jones say they are suspending their campaign contributions immediately.
Additionally, former Republican politician Steve Schmidt, the founder of the anti-Trump Lincoln Project, says his group plans to purchase full-page ads in Missouri newspapers listing all of Hawley’s donors who are demanding their money back.
They also plan to put a spotlight on those who are still financing Hawley.
The Kansas City based Hallmark company has already indicated they wanted the donations returned.
Here are some of the comments from the Corporations halting donations.
Health care IT firm Cerner Corp: Spokeswoman Misti Preston says “We plan to suspend contributions to any candidate or official who took part in or incited violence last week in Washington, D.C.”
Ameren: The company indicated that Jan. 6 was “a profoundly sad day in American history” and that those “troubling events” are part of the reason it was suspending all federal PAC contributions.
Edward Jones: “Our PAC has a long history of bipartisan advocacy, and we want to ensure that any elected officials we support share the values and the views of the firm. We strongly condemn the violence in our nation’s capital, and join with other CEOs, government and civic leaders and members of the business community in calling for a peaceful transition of power, which is a hallmark of our democracy.”
