The retail company Target just gave over $150,000 to buy ads supporting a far-right Republican candidate for governor in Minnesota.
That's bad enough. But the stakes are much higher than one candidate and one company. If we don't push back hard, this will just be the tip of the iceberg. Other corporations will learn that they can pour money into elections to buy the outcome they want. So we're sending a message to Target's CEO that we won't shop there if Target continues spending money on elections.
Elizabeth Cunningham, a compiled petition with your individual comment will be presented to Target CEO Greg Steinhafel. (Not Elizabeth Cunningham? Click here.)
Full petition text:
"I won't shop at Target until it stops spending money on elections. Companies like Target should stay out of elections, period."
