Target Faces Backlash For Supporting Tom Emmer In Post-Citizens United World | TPMDC
Target CEO Gregg Steinhafel has explained that the company’s support for Emmer is based purely on economic issues. “Target has a history of supporting organizations and candidates, on both sides of the aisle, who seek to advance policies aligned with our business objectives, such as job creation and economic growth,” wrote Steinhafel. “It is also important to note that we rarely endorse all advocated positions of organizations or candidates we support, and we do not have a political or social agenda.”-
Umm, you can’t give to a candidate with a radical political agenda and then turn around and say we don’t have an agenda (as your money/speech just went to a guy with an odious one).
