Months after the attack on the U.S. Capitol, many deep-pocketed corporations say they are continuing to withhold campaign donations to 147 Republican lawmakers — including Maryland’s Andy Harris — who refused to certify last year’s presidential election results. Big political players such as Exelon Corp., Comcast Corp., and Eli Lilly and Co., which collectively donated $15,000 to Harris during the 2019-20 election cycle, told The Baltimore Sun they aren’t ready to lift the indefinite funding pauses imposed after the Jan. 6 Capitol occupation by a mob loyal to former President Donald Trump.
