Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., blasted companies for parroting President Biden’s now-debunked claims, including that Georgia’s new voting legislation is “Jim Crow on steroids.”
“Corporations will invite serious consequences if they become a vehicle for far-left mobs to hijack our country from outside the constitutional order,” McConnell said in a statement. “Businesses must not use economic blackmail to spread disinformation and push bad ideas that citizens reject at the ballot box.”
The MLB pulled this year’s All-Star Game and MLB draft out of Georgia, and companies, including JPMorgan and Delta Airlines, condemned the recently signed voting law.
“Wealthy corporations have no problem operating in New York, for example, which has fewer days of early voting than Georgia, requires excuses for absentee ballots, and restricts electioneering via refreshments,” McConnell said. “There is no consistent or factual standard being applied here. It’s just a fake narrative gaining speed by its own momentum.”
“This disinformation has a purpose,” he continued. “Washington Democrats want to pass a sweeping bill that would let them rewrite all 50 states’ election laws and turn the Federal Election Commission into a Democrat-run partisan body. This power grab is impossible to defend, so the left wants to deflect. Instead of winning the debate, they want to silence debate by bullying citizens and entire states into submission.”
Delta CEO Ed Bastian sent a notice to employees last week saying he wanted to “make it crystal clear that the final bill is unacceptable and does not match Delta’s values.”
