GM Donates $125 Million To Voter Suppression Org

General Motors has donated $125 million to a right-wing organization that works on suppressing the votes of Blacks, minorities, and young people.

The multimillion-dollar gift comes after GM and CEO Mary Barra said it openly supports the right to vote. But then GM gave its massive donation to the Republican State Leadership Committee.

“The RSLC has publicly supported voter suppression efforts across the country, including a version of the Georgia voting legislation that was even harsher than the measure that ultimately became law. The RSLC supported a proposal to end no-excuse absentee voting in Georgia and ban drop boxes,” Popular Information reports.

Reflecting the Republican Party’s frequent inability to appeal to a majority of voters, the party and many of its satellite organizations have focused on suppressing the existing vote to produce Republican wins.

These efforts have been aimed at cutting down on key Democratic voting blocs, particularly minority voters. At the same time, companies like GM have been hawking cars and trucks to minority audiences.
