Toyota first said it was wrong to judge members of Congress for voting against electoral certification.
WGN published an article on June 28, 2021 titled Toyota is top donor to election-objector Republicans, defends contributions. The article reports in part:
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 the left-leaning group 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 large 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.”
Toyota began trending on Twitter Monday, and replies to one of Toyota’s promotional tweets with the motto “Let’s go places” inspired a flood of critical replies, many including photos of the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
However, the Rhino Never Trump group called The Lincoln Project threatened to run inflammatory ads against Toyota if the company continued to donate to members of congress who voted against electoral certification.
The Detroit News published an article on July 8, 2021 titled Toyota stops donations to election objectors after PAC takes ads out against company. The article reports in part:
Toyota Motor Corp. will no longer donate to members of Congress who voted against certifying the 2020 election in January, the company said Thursday, after facing blowback over corporate contributions.
The move also follows an announcement earlier in the day that The Lincoln Project, a political action committee founded by Republicans to help defeat former President Donald Trump in the 2020 election, would be releasing a series of advertisements directed at companies that donated to policymakers who opposed certifying the election on Jan. 6, beginning with Toyota.
Toyota initially believed that it was wrong to judge members of Congress solely based on their votes on the electoral certification. That right concept should still stand since the only thing that has changed is a few hateful Rhinos threatened Toyota with its Never Trump attitude.
The very few people who call themselves Republicans and hate Donald Trump should not have the final word regarding the legitimate questioning of election fraud by our elected representatives. The vast majority, close to 95%, of Republicans do not hold this position so why should this small group of whiners have so much clout.
Now would be a good time to encourage Toyota to reconsider the position that it originally believed to be right after a few weeks have passed since the hate spewing Rhinos got their way.
Florida Family Association has prepared an email for you to send to encourage Toyota to reconsider the position that it originally believed to be right not to judge members of Congress solely based on their votes on the electoral certification.

The very few people who call themselves Republicans and hate Donald Trump should not have the final word regarding legitimate questioning of election fraud by our elected US Representatives. Toyota initially believed it was wrong to judge members of Congress solely based on their votes on the electoral certification. If that concept was right then it should be right now. Please stand by your original belief that it is right not to judge members of congress for questioning election fraud.
