Government Motors’ political contributions

GM is owned by the US government.

Why the hell is GM making political contributions?

When General Motors went through bankruptcy last year, it suspended its political donations. Now that it’s owned by the U.S. government, it’s donating to lawmakers’ pet projects again.

The carmaker gave $41,000 to groups associated with lawmakers, the vast majority of it — $36,000 — to the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, the company reported on a disclosure form last week. The CBC Foundation is a charity with 11 members of the Congressional Black Caucus on its board.

GM is not a private company any more. They are owned by the US Taxpayers.

They shouldn’t be donating money to anything.

And if you think that a donation to the CBC Foundation isn’t a political contribution, then you’re probably a liberal.
