    "...According to documents filed with the FEC in October 2010, Target continued donating to a bevy of anti-gay politicians even after Steinhafel apologized and committed to reforming the review process for future political donations. These donations even included some of the same anti-gay politicians the company had already been criticized for supporting. ... "

    Well it's no surprise. I quit shopping at Target, Walmart, and Bestbuy because of all that. I didn't think it was possible seeing as how they're some of the only retailers around anymore. But with the web, many things can be bought if needed and for less.

    Are these politicians anti-gay, or just anti gay-marriage?

    depends on the politician. Congressman David Dreier, before the vote to repeal DADT had a terrible record. He did support the repeal though. Not sure where he stands now. He is my Congressman.

    Steinhoffel is a douche. Target Corp itself is better though, since in my personal experience since they seem to treat their employees like people and they support pride festivals. Steinhoffel has also stated that he supports pro-gay politicians, but business comes first, which in this black-or-white society, translates into supporting the low-tax, "anti-gay" politicians more.

    And on a slightly unrelated note, there goes my opportunity to get a job at Target. =/ Shit.

    Isn't David Dreier supposed to be a Friend of Dorothy herself?


    Yes. That's my recollection.

    I wish this had broken before I bought a Christmas present from Target.icon_evil.gif
