Twenty of the 30 corporate PACs that gave the most money to the 147 congressional Republicans who tried to block the valid election results on January 6 are suspending some or all such contributions in the future. Those 20 companies gave a combined $26 million to the lawmakers, though corporate PACs are allowed to give a maximum of $5,000 per lawmaker per election.
The Washington Post points out that many of the nine companies in the top 30 that have not yet suspended contributions to the anti-democracy Republicans are government contractors, for whom currying favor is especially important. By contrast, a number of the companies that have taken action are consumer-facing companies that could be vulnerable to boycotts. The latter group of companies includes AT&T, Comcast, Honeywell, PricewaterhouseCoopers, General Electric, KPMG, and Verizon.
