Gem of the day
So how does the world's biggest retailer get value for money out of its political donations? Grist holds the gems:
"Over the last decade, Walmart has emerged as one of the country's largest funders of political campaigns. Its dollars skew heavily in favor of candidates who routinely vote against the environment...Walmart's largest donations have gone to some of the nation's most powerful climate-change deniers."
And I'll leave it to Grist to deliver the punchline too:
"Walmart talks big about sustainability, but doesn't put its campaign money anywhere near where its mouth is."
