Boycott RJ Reynolds

The previous post showed a link (http://www.dropthehammer.org/) where you could e-mail the five largest corporations who are contributing to Tom DeLay’s defense fund. RJ Reynolds is one of those five companies, and guess what their response has been? They are now blocking all e-mails from this organization’s server.

Here are some addresses where you can e-mail RJ Reynolds directly instead of through the server of http://www.dropthehammer.org/. Or, if you smoke and your brand is Camel, Kool, Winston, Salem, Doral, Pall Mall or Eclipse, you could change brands (these are all RJ Reynolds brands). If you know anyone who smokes one of those brands, you might want to convince them to change brands too.

Nobody ever thought the tobacco companies were upstanding corporate citizens, but this is a new low. Let’s show RJ Reynolds that sleaze doesn’t pay.

Tom, thanks for the heads-up on the e-mail block. I just hit all three of the alternative addresses.

By the way, I think the previous question about Nissan implies that it might be illegal for a foreign corporation to contribute, but that might apply only to campaigns. Does anybody know the law in this area?

Brother Kenya: It's actually Nissan USA that's listed as one of the 5. I don't know how separate they are from Nissan, but it probably enables them to participate in American politics.

Two of the three addresses wouldn't work for me, but I fired one off to the one that would.

Glad to hear you will be posting at Bring It On as well as here, Tom. Your stuff is always interesting.
