These Companies Still Support Free, Fair Election Transparency (Dreamstime)

While some woke companies have decided to support liberal activism and oppose efforts to shed sunlight on our past presidential election processes, there are some companies who are still donating to candidates who voted to debate election fraud Jan. 6.
Toyota, JetBlue, and Cigna have rejected the cancel culture activism taken by the likes of Walmart, Amazon, Morgan Stanley, and AT&T, which have stopped donating to Republican lawmakers who voted to debate 2020 election fraud in Congress.
Federal Election Commission filings up to March 31 show some companies refused to play politics on whom donations go to and are still funding the 147 lawmakers who voted to debate the claims of former President Donald Trump on election and voter fraud, according to Business Insider:
"Toyota supports candidates based on their position on issues that are important to the auto industry and the company," a Toyota spokesperson told BI. "We do not believe it is appropriate to judge members of Congress solely based on their votes on the electoral certification."
"Congressional votes are, by definition, part of the peaceful transition of power outlined by law, and therefore, we believe are not the appropriate indicator for the application of our policy," a Cigna spokesperson told BI.
It did not respond to BI requests for comment.
National Association of Realtors
It has lifted its temporary, unilateral pause on political donations to all parties, telling BI in a statement:
"This decision will ensure we continue to engage with political candidates in an effort to support America's homeowners and our nation's real estate industry."
It has lifted its pause and its PAC has donated to Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, R-N.Y., telling BI in a statement:
"We take a bipartisan approach, supporting both Republicans and Democrats. By having relationships with candidates on both sides of the aisle, we can also maintain a voice in the room on issues that are important to our crewmembers. We'll continue to have an open dialogue with PAC contributors to understand how and where their contributions should be directed."
The large New Orleans-based law firm declined a BI request for comment.
Cubic Corporation, LKQ Corporation, Sierra Nevada Corporation
Cubic declined to comment to BI, while LKQ and Sierra Nevada did not respond to a request for comment.
Among the other companies reviewed by BI from the FEC filings are trade organizations tied to companies who have donated to Republicans who sought debate on election fraud or GOP committees, including: General Motors, Wells Fargo, Pfizer, Intel, and AT&T.
"Why are the Democrats fighting so hard to hide the facts?" Trump said in a statement from his Save American PAC on Democrat attempts to obstruct a forensic audit of Arizona's election results. "I know why, and so does everyone else!"
