MIDLAND, Mich. (BRPROUD) – As reported by OpenSecrets.org, Dow Chemical is temporarily suspending donations to anyone who voted against the certification of the presidential election.
Dow Chemical released this statement:
“Dow is immediately suspending all corporate and employee political action committee (PAC) contributions to any member of Congress who voted to object to the certification of the presidential election. This suspension will remain in place for a period of one election cycle (two years for House members; up to six years for Senators), which specifically includes contributions to the candidate’s reelection committee and their affiliated PACs. Dow is committed to the principles of democracy and the peaceful transfer of power. Our values – integrity, respect for people, and protecting our planet – are the foundation on which we stand and our values guide our political contributions.”
This decision affects three members of the Louisiana delegation.
The one-term funding suspension would apply to these Louisiana congressmembers, among others:
