Toyota Wimps Out, Will No Longer Donate To Certain GOP Officials

Toyota was put in a lose-lose situation

Toyota changes stand, halts donations to election objectors

Toyota has reversed itself and now says its political action committee will no longer contribute to the Republican legislators who voted against certifying Joe Biden’s presidential election victory.

The move by the Japanese automaker comes after a social media backlash over the contributions, including threats to stop buying the company’s vehicles.

“We understand that the PAC decision to support select members of Congress who contested the results troubled some stakeholders,” Toyota said in a statement Thursday. “We are actively listening to our stakeholders, and at this time, have decided to stop contributing to those members of Congress who contested the certification of certain states in the 2020 election.”

Last week the website Axios reported that Toyota led companies in donations to the 147 members of Congress who voted in January against certifying election results on the false grounds that the election was stolen from then-President Donald Trump. (snip)

The company took input from employees and government officials, Vazin said. But the most important factor was customer feedback, he said. “That really drives our decision making,” he said.

Well, Republicans purchase quite a few vehicles from Toyota, too, so, now they will be facing lost sales from those consumers going elsewhere. Now that Toyota has given in to the Online Outrage Mobs, they will be susceptible to more blackmail from the unhinged online.

Oh, hey, just wondering if Toyota will donate to the Democrats who spread the Russia Russia Russia hoax for four years?
