Marriott Suspends Donations to Lawmakers Who Challenged Election Results – Report
Marriott International revealed on Sunday that it will suspend
donations to U.S. lawmakers who opposed the certification of Joe
Biden’s victory in the presidential election, according to Reuters.
Marriott’s (MAR) President and CEO, Arne Sorenson, released a
statement last week following the violent protests on Capitol Hill
that resulted in five people, including a police officer, losing
their lives. “It was a stunning, outrageous, and unprecedented
attack against this nation and an attempt to disenfranchise
millions of Americans,” he said. Sorenson acknowledged that
Marriott serves guests with a wide range of opinions and
perspectives but stressed that Americans should be using their
voices and their votes to express their opinions.
