Campbell’s Soup Exec Out After Conspiracy Tweet
Kelly Johnston, the company’s vice president of government affairs, drew fire last week for tweeting that billionaire philanthropist George Soros’ Open Society Foundation “planned and is executing” the Central American migrant caravan heading toward the U.S. border. OSF denied the claim in a tweet the next day. After disavowing Johnston’s comments, Campbell’s — which said in a letter to OSF that it “believes in truth and transparency” — decided to “accelerate” his departure, which had been planned for early November. Johnston’s last day was Thursday.
