Hallmark Cards Asks Hawley To Return Donations

Hallmark Cards is asking U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri to return donations that company employees made to their campaigns.

The Kansas City-based greeting card manufacturer made the request Monday after the senator opposed certifying Joe Biden's presidential win, even after a mob broke into the U.S. Capitol. The company says employees donated to political candidates at all levels through its PAC. In the last two years, the PAC donated $7,000 to Hawley.

A company spokesperswon says Hawley's actions don't reflect Hallmark's values.
