Dear 5849376,

Stop corporate funding of white supremacy

This week, House Majority Whip Steve Scalise held a "Meet Team Scalise" event to introduce Washington insiders to his staffers and his fundraising team. Given the massive outcry over Scalise's speech to David Duke's white supremacist organization, and new revelations that, in 1996, Scalise voted against a formal apology for slavery,1 it would be reasonable to assume that attendance was low.

According to a report by Politico, nearly 300 hundred people attended the event, including lobbyists for Comcast and American Airlines.2

It's not terribly surprising that Republicans in the House, who have refused to fix the Supreme Court's gutting of the Voting Rights Act and have stood solidly in the way of any kind of real immigration reform, are happy to be led by someone who has kept company with white supremacists.

But it's astonishing that major U.S. corporations would legitimize, and continue to fund, Scalise.

Tell Scalise's corporate donors not to give money to politicians who pander to white supremacists.

House Speaker Boehner and other Republican leaders may refuse to remove Scalise from leadership, but we can make it impossible for him to do his job. If corporations are clear that Scalise is a toxic asset, it will be more difficult for him to fundraise for the party. The less money Scalise can raise for Republicans, the less viable his continued leadership in the House of Representatives becomes.
