Target contributions to anti-gay
politicians never stopped

     Documents filed with the FEC in October 2010 show that Target did nothing of the sort; in fact it continued to fund anti-gay candidates, including some of the same homophobes the company had already been dissed for supporting. All this after Steinhafel promised to reform the review process for future political donations.
     Most of Target's significant political donations after August 5th went to anti-gay equality politicians.
     After Steinhafel's August 5 letter, Target's Political Action Committee recorded $41,200 in federal election activity. Of that total, $31,200 went to anti-gay rights politicians or PACs supporting those candidates.
     Human Rights Campaign has penalized Target in its ratings, for "failing to take any corrective action in response to significant community concerns."
