Where do Corporations Donate their Political Dollars?
The election is just one day away, and while everyone is busy refreshing poll numbers on favorite election websites, I thought I’d forward a link to a new website that lists the political contributions of some of the biggest corporations in the world. GoodGuide has exhaustively researched political contributions of hundreds of corporations, many of which are corporations that RAN has engaged in campaigns, including Ford, GM, Staples, Citi and Bank of America. Take a minute and peruse www.goodguide.com/contributions to see where the money you spend goes.
Here’s GoodGuide’s description of it’s project:
With the 2008 presidential election just days away, do you know which political parties your favorite companies support?

View the political contributions of these companies and learn how they vote with your dollars. Once you see this surprising information, it may literally change how and where you shop forever.
