Probably not up to your standards, but we can use a lot more like him.

"Blank is a strong supporter of the Democratic Party. During the 2020 elections, Blank contributed $300,000 to Biden Victory Fund, $35,000 to the Democratic National Convention, and tens of thousands of dollars to state Democratic Party committees. Blank also contributed $28,500 to the Obama Victory Fund in 2008.

"Following proposed changes to Georgia voting laws in early 2021, Blank released a statement saying, “We should be working to make voting easier, not harder for every eligible citizen,” and that his businesses and family foundation will support efforts that “advance voting access for the citizens of Georgia and across the nation.” 11 Blank also participated in an online call with over 100 corporate executives to discuss taking action following changes to state voting laws including the possibility of delaying investments in states that pass allegedly restrictive voting laws."
