HRC off-set the donation Target made to MN Forward, the rightwing PAC set up to elect officials who want to decrease social services in Minnesota and hurt the economy in order to benefit corporations and wealthy people in that state, at least one of whom is anti LGBT.
The Human Rights Campaign, based in Washington, D.C., will donate $100,000 to Win Minnesota, a PAC that helps fund anti-Emmer TV advertisements. They will toss another $20,000 to OutFront Minnesota, a GLBT group, and $30,000 to individual candidates -- including DFLer Mark Dayton.
I'm just going to assume that the candidates who will receive HRC's money would be less bad for the people living in Minnesota than the ones Target ended up giving to, so that's good.
MN Forward reported around $1.2 million in donations up to the first week of August, according to the state's campaign finance board (the donations did not stop after the outcry against Target started). As much as all of us out in Real America like to make fun of HRC for being all rich and elitist and inside-the-beltway, they really don't have anywhere near the resources that Target has. And the non-profit industry as a whole could, at most, spit into the tide of cash for-profit corporations are going to be using to sway elections their way.
