Does Charter Communications really support Voting Rights?
From 2018 to 2020, Charter contributed at least $1 million to 527 organizations underwriting efforts to pass voter suppress legislation. In the 2020 election cycle, Charter contributed directly to a Florida state legislator who championed voter suppression legislation and contributed to an organization that supported a Texas state legislator who did the same. More recently Charter has been making donations to Senator Ron Johnson despite his role in the effort to overturn the election.
Ron Johnson tried to subvert democracy. These corporations are backing his reelection.
Johnson attempted to participate in a plot to discard millions of voters in his home state of Wisconsin and neighboring Michigan, and install Trump for a second term. Despite Johnson's role in the effort to overturn the election, he is receiving financial support from major corporations — including corporations that condemned the events of January 6 and the efforts to install Trump for a second term.
