“Eleven Republican senators and senators-elect said that they would vote to reject President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s victory … to defy the unambiguous results of the election and indulge President Trump’s attempts to remain in power with false claims of voting fraud.” – NY Times

They are politicians. But who are the companies that are funding them and the subversion of democracy?
