Washington, D.C. — Following reporting revealing that President Trump’s Chief of Staff Mark Meadows worked with U.S. Reps. Jordan, Biggs, Gosar, Gohmert, Brooks, and Perry to pressure the DOJ to overturn the 2020 election results, a new Accountable.US analysis found that corporate PACs and trade groups have funneled over $59,000 in 2021 in campaign donations to five of these Republican lawmakers.

When corporations continue to give their stamp of approval to lawmakers that jeopardized our democracy and stoked the insurrection, they are showing that they value cultivating political influence above all else, even a healthy democracy for their customers, employers, and shareholders."

Kyle Herrig, president of Accountable.US.

In August, Accountable.US launched its searchable tracker that allows the public to search Fortune 500 corporations and big corporate trade associations that have contributed to those in Congress that voted against certifying the 2020 election since January of this year — including corporations that made pledges to halt or pause donations to the lawmakers that perpetuated the Big Lie. As evidenced by an Accountable.US’ recent poll, corporations that gave to anti-democratic lawmakers need to explain to their customers, employees, and shareholders how this behavior squares with their values.
