We are truly in un-charted territory now, Walmart does the right thing.
Walmart withdraws donations to Cindy Hyde-Smith after criticism

Walmart on Tuesday said it was “requesting a refund” from the campaign of Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith after the company came under pressure to distance itself from the Mississippi lawmaker’s “public hanging” remark.

Campaign finance records show that the company made a $2,000 donation on Nov. 18, nearly a week after a video of Hyde-Smith saying she would be “on the front row” if a supporter invited her to “a public hanging” went viral. Records also show the company gave a $1,000 contribution to her campaign this past June.
