McConnell: Donations From Corporations Are Fine But It’s “Stupid” For Them To Weigh In On Voting Rights

“I’m not talking about political contributions. Most of them contribute to both sides. They have political action committees. That’s fine. It’s legal. It’s appropriate. I support that.

“I’m talking about taking a position on a highly incendiary issue like this and punishing a community or state because you don’t like a particular law they passed. I just think it’s stupid. 

“Republicans drink Coca-Cola, too, and we fly, and we like baseball. It’s irritating one hell of a lot of Republican fans.” – Sen. Mitch McConnell, speaking to reporters in Kentucky.
