AT&T is pulling its support from Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith's (R-Miss.) campaign and has requested the senator’s campaign return its donations.

The telecom giant is among the latest companies to withdraw its support for Hyde-Smith after a video emerged earlier this month showing the senator saying she'd be in the "front row" of a "public hanging" if invited.

A spokesman for AT&T, which reportedly donated $2,000 to the Mississippi Republican’s campaign, told The New York Daily News on Tuesday that it had asked for its campaign donations back.

I’m thinking Ms. Hyde-Smith is running for the dental plan for Senators. Poor woman looks like someone threw a brick and she didn’t duck......

We should not normalize claw-backs of campaign contributions thus giving those who already corrupt our political system even more power.

What a nice thing to say. :roll:

And how many times have you complained when someone made fun of, say, Michelle Obama?

Tough to withdraw donations ... don't you think so? :lamo

It makes a point...and a stink. It gets in all their local papers & on local TV. Bad PR.

Personally, it's not her looks that matter. IT's here bigotry and 'insert foot in mouth disease'

And in the primary they criticized Chris McDaniel, the authentic conservative for being too much of a loose cannon. Now they have a loose cannon RINO, great job Senator Cochran trying to choose your successor.

You do know that public hangings, when administered by the justice system, are not the same as illegal lynchings?
