In December 2008, Ford did not take any government auto bailout money unlike its Detroit-based competitors, General Motors Corp. and Chrysler LLC. Ford set up $23.5 billion worth of credit in 2006.
Ford is paying the Tea Party protesters in order to increase their market share through brand loyalty.
CLG contacted Ford Motor Co. for comment Wednesday, and Ford has not responded. This article will be updated with their response, should they provide one.
Update: FORD MOTOR COMPANY and PR firm BURSON MARSTELLAR have been visiting the CLG, reading this story, etc.
