Last week Target Corporation gave $150,000 to Minnesota Forward, a group supporting Republican Tom Emmer’s campaign for Minnesota governor. This donation, clearly acceptable under the new Citizens United Supreme Court ruling angered many in the state, seeing this as a $150,000 contribution to fund anti-gay politics since Emmer has many anti-gay connections.
One Eden Prairie mom and grandmother took her anger directly to a Target. Her repeated attempts to get to Target executives failed so she took her Target Charge Card. A $226 purchase on that card was immediately returned for credit and she scissored her Target card into little pieces to be used no more.
