SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Toyota is the top donor to Republicans who did not want to certify the results of the 2020 presidential election.
Just in the first half of 2021, Toyota gave $55,000 to 37 Republicans who objected to President Biden’s win, Axios reported.
The data comes from a group called Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, whose numbers show that not only is Toyota the number one donor, but the auto company leads by a huge margin – spending at least $20,000 more than the number two donor, San Diego-based Cubic Corp.
In response to the report, Toyota told Axios: “We do not believe it is appropriate to judge members of Congress solely based on their votes on the electoral certification.”
Other big companies that donated to election objectors include Koch Industries, AT&T, Cigna, Deere Company, Reynolds American, and Applied Research Associates Inc.
