Thomas sent a message to Mark Fields – President and Chief Executive Officer of Ford Motor Company email address that said:
My wife and I were in the market for a new vehicle and were seriously looking at a ford edge. However your absolute bias against the republican party and the upcoming election has now caused us to look elsewhere. We would like to thank you for your honesty as apparently we have no right not to adhere to what you and others think lest we be bigots,homo-phoebes or God knows what. Good luck to you.
