The bull’s-eye on Target is getting bigger. As we described in our August 2 entry, the retailer donated $100,000 to a business group for ads supporting a rightwing gubernatorial candidate in its home state of Minnesota. It gave another $50,000 to help the group’s operations. Now Target is paying the price and teaching other corporations about the backlash they may experience if they use their customers money to sway an election. Despite the Supreme Court’s ruling, Target is not a voter, not a person, not a friend. You can let the company know what you think through the MoveOn link. And you can use the example as a call for broad reforms, as the Brennan Center does.
