There is a corporate stampede to stop PAC donations to Republicans for the sin of voting against certifying electors from states, on suspicion of election irregularities.

Companies that have announced a suspension or ban on such donations started with Marriott, and Commerce Bancshares.

According to Forbes:

‘Over a dozen other companies joined the growing group on Monday: Hilton Hotels, American Airlines, BP, Coca-Cola, Goldman Sachs, Boston Scientific, Microsoft, Hallmark, Facebook, and Visa all said they will suspend and review political giving to both parties, while AirBnB, Verizon, AT&T, Comcast, American Express, Mastercard, and Dow, one of the largest chemical companies in the world, are halting donations to the Republican objectors specifically for either a few either a few months or an indefinite period of time.’

We certainly hope that these companies will be consistent and include Democrats who cast precisely the same vote in 2005 — to object to Ohio electors for the purpose of investigating alleged irregularities — in their donation ban.

For their convenience, we supply the list:
