Knock me over with a feather.
Interestingly, one of Gibson’s leading competitors is C.F. Martin
& Co. According to C.F. Martin’s catalog, several of their guitars
contain “East Indian Rosewood,” which is the exact same wood in at least
10 of Gibson’s guitars. So why were they not also raided and their
inventory of foreign wood seized?
Grossly underreported at the time was the fact that Gibson’s chief
executive, Henry Juszkiewicz, contributed to Republican politicians.
Recent donations have included $2,000 to Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn.,
and $1,500 to Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn.
By contrast, Chris Martin IV, the Martin & Co. CEO, is a
long-time Democratic supporter, with $35,400 in contributions to
Democratic candidates and the Democratic National Committee over the
past couple of election cycles. --ColdFury quoting IBD
Nothing to see here. Move along.

Coincidentally, you forgot to mention that Juszkiewicz also contributed to Democrat Jim Cooper.
Get the fuck off this blog, Jim.
Jim knows his rights and will not be cajoled or silenced by anonymous reactionaries.
