American Express, AT&T, Marriott, Others Won’t Donate to Republicans Who Opposed Electoral College Vote

Several major corporations have announced they will refuse to donate to pro-life Republican lawmakers who objected to the Electoral College vote certifying the presidential election for pro-abortion Joe Biden.

Last week, members of the House and Senate resolved to complete the process of certifying the Electoral College after protests inside the Capitol building disrupted the process earlier in the day.

Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona objected to the Arizona results while Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri and Rep. Scott Perry of Pennsylvania objected to the Pennsylvania results. For the Arizona votes, the Senate overwhelmingly voted 93-6 against challenging the votes, while the House voted 303-121. Similarly, for Pennsylvania, the Senate voted 92-7 against the objection, while the House voted 282-138.

Now, big corporations are promising to withhold donations from Republicans who voted no, and virtually all of them are pro-life. As the Epoch Times reports:

American Express CEO Stephen Squeri issued a statement on Jan. 6, saying, “Like many of you, I watched with profound sadness, anger, and disgust at the violence and lawlessness that took place earlier today at the U.S. Capitol building. These actions were dangerous and anti-American.”

In a follow-on statement on Jan. 11, Squeri said the American Express political action committee, which previously made contributions to 22 of the 139 House members who voted in favor of the objections, would no longer support any Republican members of Congress who cast votes in opposition to certifying Biden’s win.

“Last week’s attempts by some congressional members to subvert the presidential election results and disrupt the peaceful transition of power do not align with our American Express Blue Box values; therefore, the AXP PAC will not support them,” he wrote.

Other corporations have issued similar statements, including Airbnb, Amazon, AT&T, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Commerce Bank, Dow Chemical, Marriott, and Mastercard.

“Airbnb strongly condemns last week’s attack on the U.S. Capitol and the efforts to undermine our democratic process,” the company said in a statement. “The Airbnb PAC will update its framework and withhold support from those who voted against the certification of the presidential election results.”

AT&T released a statement on Monday, saying, “Employees on our Federal PAC Board convened a call today and decided to suspend contributions to members of Congress who voted to object to the certification of Electoral College votes last week.”

The decision by these corporations to snub Republicans who were concerned about free and fair elections and ensuring there was no election fraud in the presidential contest will make it easier for pro-abortion Nancy Pelosi and Congressional Democrats, who are feverishly trying to force Americans to fund abortions, to hold on to power in the House and Senate.
