According to Judd Legum and Tesnim Zekeria, many companies have decided to cut ties with Republican lawmakers who tried to overturn the results of the 2020 election in favor of Donald Trump.

The companies include: Hallmaker, Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, Marriott International, Commerce Bank, Dow Inc. and Mastercard.

But the Hallmark company has decided to take it one step further and urged two Republican Senators to return their donations after they took part in the failed insurrection in Washington, D.C.

Hallmark demanded refunds from Sens. Roger Marshall (R-KS) and Josh Hawley (R-MO).

“Hallmark believes the peaceful transition of power is part of the bedrock of our democratic system, and we abhor violence of any kind,” the company said in a statement. “The recent actions of Senators Josh Hawley and Roger Marshall do not reflect our company’s values. As a result, HALLPAC requested Sens. Hawley and Marshall to return all HALLPAC campaign contributions.”

According to Popular Information, HALLPAC donated $3,000 to Hawley and $5,000 to Marshall during the 2020 campaign cycle.

It was not immediately clear if the senators would return the money.
