GM Will Not Allow Presidential Candidates Campaign Visits, Direct Deposit Works Just Fine

General Motors Co and Chrysler Group LLC, U.S. automakers that received billions of dollars in government help to stay afloat during the recession, said they will not allow presidential candidates to make stops at their plants.

President Barack Obama often touts the financial health of both GM and Chrysler and has appeared at auto plants of both companies frequently in the past several years.

While the federal government still owns 26 percent of GM’s shares, Obama cannot go to a GM plant until after the November 6 election, GM said.

GM’s policy has been not to allow campaign stops at its plants, said spokeswoman Heather Rosenker, since it became a new company in 2009 after the former GM went into bankruptcy protection and emerged after a $49.5 billion bailout from the U.S. Treasury.

GM’s postion is that  personal visit not necessary, paperless direct deposit is the best way to go green.
