Target donated a pile of money to the Gubernatorial campaign of Tom Emmer, the anti-Gay Marriage, pro-Drunk Driving* candidate for the Republican Party in Minnesota.

Meanwhile, his opponent is Mark Dayton. Why is this significant? He's the great-grandson of George Dayton. George founded Dayton's department stores in the first decade of the 1900s, and in 1962 the company's CEO opened the first . . . yes, you guessed it, Target.

Target's past vs. Target's present, really.


* He's not really pro-drunk driving. Rather, he's tried to soften the penalties for driving drunk. Might have something with the two times he was arrested for it, might not.
