Wal-Mart Chairman Gives $1M To Obama Super PAC; Bundlers Moonlight As Super PAC Donors
By Luke Rosiak October 20, 2012 The super PAC backing President Obama raised $15 million last month, including $1 million from Sam Walton, the chairman of Wal-Mart, a traditional Republican-leaning organization.
Also contributing $1 million to Priorities USA was filmmaker Steven Spielberg, whose colleague Jeffrey Katzenberg is an Obama bundler and gave $1 million himself. Fred Eychaner, who has raised at least half a million dollars from acquaintances for the Obama campaign, gave $2 million personally to the super PAC.

Gave one million to Obama.
Well, frankly then I really don’t care if unions succeed in taking over Walmart.
I wonder if this is to show appreciation to Obama for his huge increase in the welfare roles and EBT cards?
Could be purely a business decision. Wal Mart is the biggest retailer of low cost goods — something people really, really need when the economy sucks.
4 more years of Obama guarantees 4 more years before Wal Mart has to worry about shoppers visiting more upscale alternatives.
Gives me all the more reason to shop at a Target store.
I never go there. In our Walmart you have to either speak spanish, or Swahili. I don’t speak either.
I actually lasted 9 months working at Walmart. Worst place I ever worked. I have not set foot in a Walmart in 3 1/2 years.
It was given out of pure self-interest. Romney has vowed to get tough on China's currency manipulation and Walmart is the by far the biggest profiteer on Chinese imports.
DISGUSTING!!!! Is Sam Walton GAY?? Honestly, why would decent people give money or votes to such LOWLIFES???
Don't worry about that. It it is a site banned from FR, the posting page software will prevent you from posting.
Thank you. I was gonna say the same thing except I was gonna use more words.
Sam Walton II is just looking out for his own @$$, and Ayn Rand would approve.
You people here at FR stand up for Wal*Mart all the time. I’ve dealt with them as a supplier and they are ruthless at driving USA businesses out of business favoring China’s “lower costs”’ ,,, and now they support Obama? I’ve been flamed here often for my view. Ok, for the “love Wal*Mart” crowd here at FR ... Lets see you defend this ... Don’t give me “outrage” give me the defense. Kind of like defending liberals isn’t it...and you have done it often here for Wal*Mart, as naively as any Obama hope and changer. Now you see the real Wal*Mart appear and you are outraged. C’mon flamers, I want to see you defend this one. (Crickets?)
$1MM is pocket change to these guys, maybe they’re hedging their bets?
I though about six months ago I read they received a waver.
Have you heard that as well?
