A major website crash and thousand of angry online shoppers didn't get in the way of Target's 3rd quarter profits.

Earlier this week the retailer reported their profits rose 3.7% to $555 million compared to $535 million a year ago.

Target's chairman and president Gregg Steinhafel said in a statement they're "very pleased" with the results and are confident they have "the right strategy and team in place to drive continued strong performance this holiday season and well into the future."

Target's Still Supporting Anti-Gay Politicians!

Really!?

Earlier this year there was a MAYJAH backlash against Target after the public discovered they were donating to anti-gay politicians.

In August, CEO Gregg Steinhafel released a statement apologizing for their decision, adding:

"…later this fall, Target will take a leadership role in bringing together a group of companies and partner organizations for a dialogue focused on diversity and inclusion in the workplace, including GLBT issues."

Apparently his so called apology were just words on paper because they're STILL doing it!

Filings with the FEC show Target has donated thousands of dollars to these politicians since August:

Spencer Bachus — voted to ban same-sex adoptions

David Camp — supported a ban on same-sex marriage and voted against protecting gays from job discrimination

Michael Crapo — supported anti-gay Constitutional amendments

Dave Reichert — supported anti-gay Constitutional amendments

Rob Portman — supported banning same-sex adoptions

Erik Paulsen — voted against DADT repeal

John Kline — voted against treating anti-gay attacks as hate crimes

Awful!

Not surprisingly, Target declined to explain their donations.

Thoughts???
