And the great thing is all they got for it is a dent in their balance sheet and some bad PR.

Apparently ATT and others are doing the whole "apology tour".

Mistakes were made, America.

AT&T circulated a memo to employees Friday that called its $600,000 payment to a shell company set up by Donald Trump lawyer Michael Cohen in exchange for political influence a “big mistake.”

“To be clear, everything we did was done according to the law and entirely legitimate,” AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson said in an internal memo obtained by Reuters. “But the fact is, our past association with Cohen was a serious misjudgment.”

Stephenson also said that the company’s chief lobbyist, Bob Quinn, was stepping down.

AT&T’s mea culpa comes close on the heels of one issued by Novartis CEO Vasant Narasimhan, whose pharmaceutical firm was also revealed to have paid Cohen $1.2 million for an insider ticket to Trumpworld.

“We made a mistake in entering into this engagement and, as a consequence, are being criticized by a world that expects more from us,” Narasimhan wrote on Friday.

In his own letter to his employees, Narasimhan, who became CEO after the payments to Cohen’s Essential Consultants had been set up, vented about the personal toll the scandal was exacting in a way that seemed ripe for parody in a “South Park” episode.
While these payments and their subsequent regrets may be news to most Americans, for special counsel Robert Mueller, they have been known for months. Mueller’s team of investigators questioned officials at AT&T and Novartis about their arrangement with Cohen last November, giving the CEO’s ample time to craft their statements to the public.

Apparently trying to buy a candidate/political favors isn't such a good idea afterall.
