Target Reponds To Cuccinelli Flap

On Friday questions were raised by Right Wing Watch regarding a $50,000 donation made by Target to a GOP group that supports, among others, the gubernatorial campaign of anti-gay Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli.  Target has issued a response:
"Target has a long-standing commitment to the LGBT community. We also believe strongly in our civic responsibility to engage in a bipartisan manner at the state and federal level in order to learn about public policy priorities and advocate on issues that affect our business, such as fairness legislation," stated Snyder. "One of the ways we do this is through membership in both the Democratic and Republican Governors Associations, both of which include several hundred other corporate members. When paying for our memberships, we explicitly require that our dues not be used for any individual electoral campaigns or other electioneering efforts. It would therefore be wrong and inaccurate to associate our membership dues with any particular political candidate or campaign."
