HP Employees Won’t Give Carly Fiorina a Dime



Out of the thousands of people she worked with, why are only two giving Fiorina a reportable amount of cash?

The employees at Hewlett-Packard, where Carly Fiorina was CEO for six years, don’t seem interested in seeing their old boss become commander-in-chief.

Of the 302,000 employees at the company, not one has given a reportable amount to help Fiorina fund her 2016 presidential campaign, according to the campaign’s most recent FEC filings, which lists all donations over $200. HP’s corporate leadership also doesn’t seem keen on the idea of Fiorina in the White House. Among the 12-member board of directors, just one, Ann Livermore, has given a donation above that threshold.

Also missing from the donor list are current CEO (and former GOP gubernatorial candidate) Meg Whitman, any members of the senior leadership team, and all but one member of the HP Board during Fiorina’s tenure there from 1999 to 2005. Tom Perkins, a venture capitalist and former board member who voted to fire Fiorina in 2005, has since had a change of heart and donated $25,000 to CARLY for America, the super PAC supporting her.

1. EVERYONE who knows her, hates her.

Therefore, I can guarantee you the teaparty will absolutely LOVE HER.

We liberals make a mistake when we assume the more corruption and evil is exposed about the GOP the more they will lose their support.

Opposite is true.

Their supporters hate the United States.

They want the Christian States of North America, and whatever they have to do to achieve this, is what they will do.

2. I think the one way to destroy a lot of the tea party Republicans is to give large

reportable amounts to their campaign as being from Planned Parenthood, PETA, HRC and such.

That must have been one hell of a blow job.

6. For Perkins, that was just the loose change in his bankers suit left pants pocket

You know, when you buy something with a credit card and want to leave a tip to the guy behind the counter (and get rid of those annoying coins.)

Of course Perkins is getting up there in age and Carly's face may actually turn him on (just like his favorite mare on the farm.)

8. Duh!

Let's see: she fired 30,000 people and outsourced their jobs, nearly ran the company into the ground, got millions of dollars in the process, and she's one nasty poor excuse for a human being.

10. They sure hold a grudge, just because she practically destroyed HP

and their livelihood as it's CEO. After all, she only received $100 million for 5 grueling years of running the company in the ground (including her $20M golden parachute buyout).

But I do wonder how many will vote Republican for President!?!

11. Damn Right.

I worked for HP when she was there and she was hated. If she visited a sales office, the office got a ten page list of instructions on how to prepare and treat her, including things like never talk to her unless she talked to you, what food and drink to have, etc. One would think she was a rock star, and she certainly believed it.

While the company was sinking, she had HP buy two new business jets for her personal transportation.

What a POS!

When I got laid off with several hundred others, she won't get a dime from me.
