The most Republican-leaning company in the country, based on political donations, isnt Koch Industries. Its the company that makes Wonder Bread.
The political action committee of Flowers Foods, a Georgia company that produces the pillowy sandwich bread, Tastykakes and Natures Own baked goods, has given more than 99 percent of its political contributions since 1979 to Republicans. Only three Democratic congressional candidates have gotten money from its PAC since 1984, and not one in the past 20 years.

I wonder how much the corporation donates to left wing orgs?
Well, doing the math based on the above - <1%.
Red, yellow, and blue, were the original colors of superman’s outfit.
So this is basically the NYtimes pointing out a target for the cadre?
That was my first thought as well. Next up: Cuomo posing for a selfie #RealPeopleDon’tEatTastyKakes
This is why I don’t let politics dictate my purchases. Wonderbread is the worst bread in the world, I wouldn’t take it free. Maybe they should take some of that money they’re investing in politics and put it into product research.
Only the NY Times is allowed to have an opinion on political candidates.
They need to copy Mrs Bairds or Sunbeam
The company should tack a “guilt credit” on to the price of their products in NY that will be donated to a democrat of the company’s choosing.
This looks like the commie ‘RATS at the New Yawk Slimes are out to get Wonder bread. Nice. I hate communists. The next thing you know, the fags and the atheists will be boycotting Wonder bread.
Remember when Wonder packed up and left California after they passed greenhouse gas emissions standards for businesses there?
I know they are in Thomasville, Georgia. I wonder if they are related to the very prominent Flowers Family which originated in Dothan, Alabama?
I remember the Rev. Drury Flowers used to host “Pastors Forum” on Channel 4, in Dothan. It was channel 9 back then.
There is also a Flowers Hospital in Dothan. Richmond Flowers was a political enemy of George Wallace and his son was one of the all time great hurdlers. He also played football for Tennessee and several NFL teams.
I remember here in St. Pete circa 1996, during the riots spearheaded by the People’s Democratic Uhuru, one of the targets firebombed (I never read this in the St. Pete Times-Pravda, I saw it with my own (deceived?) two eyes) was the little Flowers Bakery depot about half a mile south of downtown. At the time I never understood why they targeted it...
The new president of NPR, Jarl Mohn contributed $217,000 to Democrats.
The MSM yawns...
I have no idea, but that sounds like a good guess
