Georgia Makes the Corporations That Denounced the State’s Voter Integrity Law Look Foolish

Published on

The voter integrity law was passed by Georgia’s General Assembly in 2021 to address some of the problems that plagued state elections, particularly in 2020. It made voting difficult and provided campaign volunteers and advocacy groups with the opportunity to distribute snacks and bottled waters labeled with messages, encouraging certain candidates.

Ballot harvesting was a big issue. Democrats tried to stop the state’s attempts to remove people who died or had moved out of state from the voter rolls. Personally, I saw my county’s Democrat sheriff circulating through a line with early voters, greeting and speaking to them.

To address problems such as these, the state legislature adopted SB 202 (or the Election Integrity Act). Gov. Brian Kemp said that the bill would make it easier to vote and more difficult to cheat.

“The law contains popular election integrity safeguards such as signature matching, voter identification, restrictions on dropbox, restrictions on voter ID, restriction on drop boxes and a ban on the mass mail of absentee ballot request form forms to people who didn’t ask for them,” Natalia Mittlestadt reports at Just the News.

Kemp signed the bill with ink, but it wasn’t dry before the Democrats started complaining. Unsurprisingly, Stacey Abrams was the leader. USA Today published an opinion piece by Abrams that stated:

Georgia’s racist and classist bill has prompted a passionate response. It is now law in Georgia. The fate of events hosted by major league baseball, college soccer, and dozens more Hollywood films is in doubt. Activists urge Georgians not to use their hometown products as a way to voice outrage. I won’t support an individual’s decision to choose their competitors until we hear clear and unambiguous statements showing that Georgia-based businesses get what’s at risk.

USA Today quietly removed Abrams’ call for a Georgia boycott from the op-ed. However, that didn’t stop leftist politicians and corporations from voicing their disapproval of Georgia, including lies about the voter integrity laws. Major League Baseball pulled the All-Star Game. Rob Manfred, the commissioner of Major League Baseball, said that the move was “the best way for us to demonstrate our values” as Major League Baseball supports all Americans’ voting rights and opposes any restrictions to the ballot box.

Atlanta won the last laugh, as the Atlanta Braves won the World Series. They hosted not one but three games.

Manfred retorted and praised the Braves’ outreach toward the Native American community. Two local Atlanta businesses, however, took the opportunity to feed them after the law was passed.

Ed Bastian, Delta’s CEO, stated that the law was “unacceptable and does not align with Delta’s values.” James Quincey CEO of Coca-Cola referred to it as “unacceptable” or “a step backward.”

The new law had already been implemented in Atlanta’s mayoral election of November 2021. No one was disqualified for voting. In September, U.S. District Judge Stephen Jones, an Obama appointee, ruled the law was not unconstitutional and did not violate the Voting Rights act.

In Georgia, the midterm elections were a success with a low turnout and no problems.

After the law’s passage, Georgia set a new record for midterm early voter turnout. Mittelstadt reports that the total turnout of both in-person as well as absentee early voters was 2,504,956.” “This year’s total early voters were 2,288,889, compared with 1,890,364 in the 2018 midterm elections.

The long lines seem to be gone.

Joe Scarborough heard from Brad Raffensperger, Georgia Secretary of State, that the average wait time for lines was two minutes. “Tracking takes three minutes.” The longest time on the leaderboard is 14 minutes. 47 seconds for check-in, once you get to the front line. “It was very easy.”

Raffensperger said, “We worked hard together with the counties in order to keep these lines short.” “Ensure that everyone was able to vote. Georgia allows absentee voting with no excuses, and you have 17 days to vote before Election Day. We gave the voters a choice and they chose. We had a calm, peaceful, well-attended, and, most importantly, very high turnout election.”

The question is: When will Georgia be able to apologize to MLB, Delta, and Coca-Cola for its actions?
