No More Shopping at Target For Me

Well, Target is currently being boycotted due to the fact that the retail chain gave $150,000 to support Tom Emmer, Minnesota and anti-gay gubernatorial candidate.

Many know the department store as a gay friendly establishment but after Emmer's support knowing he has been making marriage inequality a large part of his campaign strategy, GLBT members have turned away from Target.

Many question: if they are progressive enough to offer domestic partnership benefits to gay employees, what is the store's rebuttal for Tom's support? According to them, they support candidates who will "directly affect the company's retail agenda", positively.

I can't believe they would do this, yuck. Tom Emmer is one of the most hateful tea party members out there and target is supporting him? Sounds like a bad idea to me.
