    Wal-Mart Makes "Last Minute Donations" To Republicans

    Wal-Mart makes 'last minute donations' to Republicans

    Published: Monday November 6, 2006

    An activist group that targets unscrupulous activity by Wal-Mart accuses the powerful megastore of supporting key Republican candidates in the build-up to Election Day.

    "After launching a voter education campaign to attack Democratic candidates fighting for a better America, Wal-Mart is now pouring money into key races to support its anti-family, anti-employee agenda," says in a press release issued today.

    The release listed examples from recent weeks where Wal-Mart donated to the GOP candidates in "hotly contested races." Among them:

    $10,000 total to Tom Kean, GOP candidate for U.S. Senate from New Jersey, trailing in the latest polls against incumbent Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez;

    $5,000 to embattled GOP Rep. Tom Reynolds of New York, in a tight race for re-election against Dem challenger Jack Davis;

    $5,000 to Michael Steele, GOP candidate for U.S. Senate from Maryland, battling Dem candidate Ben Cardin;

    $2,500 to Mike DeWine, incumbent GOP Senator from Ohio, trailing in a re-election race against Dem challenger Sherrod Brown;

    The release notes that these and other donations follow a half-million dollar donation by Wal-Mart to the Republican Governor's Association in September.

    "Wal-Mart's last minute contributions to Republicans proves that Wal-Mart is not only a right wing company but supports an anti-family, anti-employee agenda which ships U.S. jobs overseas, denies workers a living wage and fails to expand health care to hard-working families," said's campaign director in the release, which is viewable in full at their website.
