Yahoo drop membership in controversial US Chamber of Commerce

You remember the US Chamber of Commerce.  They’re a bit of a rogue organization here in DC.  They have such a wholesome name, like the Kiwanis – you never knew exactly what they did, but you figured it must be something good, or at least benign.  Then you find out the truth.  They’re a far-right Republican lobbying juggernaut that has devastated civil rights in this country (including being responsible for the recent wholesale repeal of gay rights in Tennessee, and now Michigan is trying the same thing – thanks Chamber!) and done far more damage on other issues.

And now Yahoo joins Apple in dropping them.  Ouch.
