Ooops They Did It Again! TARGET Donates 50K To SuperPac Supporting Anti-Gay Ken Cuccinelli

Target Busted Again

Fool me once, shame on you.  Fool me twice, shame on me.

In 2010 that Target Corporation donated $150,000 to a PAC that supported homophobic Minnesota gubernatorial candidate Tom Emmer.  The backlash that ensured against the company forced it revise its corporate giving policies, and even launched a series of Gay Pride shirts in an attempt to restore its gay-friendly reputation  Now thanks to Right Wing Watch  TARGET has been busted again by showing that ut gave over  $50,000 to the Republican Governors Association, which  this year has spent nearly $3 million on behalf of [Ken] Cuccinelli’s gubernatorial campaign.

Cuccinelli as the homophobic attorney general from Virginia has an extensive history of  public homophobic remarks, and is running on a election platform to bring back Virginia’s sodomy laws if he’s elected.

Target has not yet released a statement about the donations. (They need time to spin it)
