Apparently, tech giants are horrified that Donald Trump is on par to blow away the democrat candidate at the polls, so at least one CEO has emailed 10 million customers telling them how to vote.
David Barrett, the CEO for the financial and expense management company Expensify, emailed 10 million of his customers this week to urge them to vote for Joe Biden, telling them that refusing to cast a ballot for the Democratic candidate is tantamount to voting “against democracy.”
Expensify customers began posting copies of the email on social media earlier this week. “You know what to do: Show up on November 3rd and vote for Biden,” Barrett writes in the letter, claiming also that Trump is working to suppress the vote and that the election itself is “about the very foundation of our nation.”
Wow. Just received an extraordinary email from @expensify CEO @dbarrett. I can’t remember ever seeing anything even remotely close to it. pic.twitter.com/lPCBMjQSh4— Rick Klau (@rklau) October 22, 2020
“It wasn’t done as a business calculation,” he added. “But in the end, I think it’ll be good for business.”
Of course he thinks it will be “good for business” if Biden gets elected…
