WalMart Withdraws Support Of Cindy Hyde-Smith, Demands Refund
November 20, 2018

Ruh Roh. Walmart has rescinded a campaign donation they made to Cindy Hyde-Smith, that Mississippi Senate Candidate (guess which party) whose comments about public hanging and being pro-voter suppression have made national headlines.

Debra Messing and Judd Legum on Twitter had used Twitter to point out to @Walmart that their campaign contribution was public knowledge. Whoops.

Cindy Hyde-Smith is expected to attend a debate with her Democratic opponent Mike Espy tonight. The two face a runoff election for a Mississippi US Senate Seat on November 27 (next Tuesday).

Can you help us out?

For 17 years we have been exposing Washington lies and untangling media deceit, but now Facebook is drowning us in an ocean of right wing lies. Please give a one-time or recurring donation, or buy a year's subscription for an ad-free experience. Thank you.
