Walmart, Disney Join Companies Halting Donations After Riot

Source: Bloomberg

(Bloomberg) -- Walmart Inc. and Walt Disney Co. will halt political donations to the lawmakers who voted against certifying the election results, joining corporate America’s push to punish politicians who sought to undermine the U.S. election.

Disney, the world’s largest entertainment company, said Tuesday that it wouldn’t make contributions in 2021 to lawmakers who voted to reject the certification of the Electoral College votes.

“The insurrection at our nation’s Capitol was a direct assault on one of our country’s most revered tenets: the peaceful transition of power,” Disney said in a statement. “In the immediate aftermath of that appalling siege, members of Congress had an opportunity to unite -- an opportunity that some sadly refused to embrace.”

Walmart, the biggest retail chain, took a similar stance in its statement.
