Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan has come under fire for continuing to donate to the campaigns of lawmakers who are pushing voting restrictions and lies about widespread election fraud.
The Defend Black Voters Coalition identified $329,000 in contributions from BCBSM to politicians who have pushed “Jim Crow-style voter suppression in Michigan” since 2016. During the same period, BCBSM donated $355,000 to the party committees supporting these lawmakers. The donations don’t include money sent to leadership PACs and administrative funds.
