I recently thought to forgo the convenience of ordering an item from Amazon in favor of helping other businesses, so planned on getting the item from Home Depot, instead.  But I came across this article noting that a surge in donations in February pushed Home Depot to the leading position of corporate donors to the Sedition Caucus.  You may remember that the Sedition Caucus is the name given to the 147 members of Congess who voted to not certify the 2020 election and to continue to support the Big Lie.
For more detailed analysis of corporate donations to the Sedition Caucus, check out this article from CREW.
Like our vote, where we spend our money can make a small difference.  Let these companies know that you are paying attention.
