100+ Corporate Leaders Meet to Discuss Opposing Election Integrity Laws
America’s big corporations are taking a stance in our culture wars – and they’re backing the Left.
For as much as I’d like to attribute the rise in “woke” marketing from corporations we’ve seen in recent years to them pretending to take stances to make money, they apparently do believe their rhetoric, and are trying to influence politics. The latest cause of theirs is embracing the Left’s fact-free case against election integrity, and they’re actively working to undermine it.
According to the Daily Caller:
The leaders of over 100 major corporations spoke via Zoom on Saturday about how they could combat election integrity laws similar to the one passed in Georgia.
The executives on the call reportedly expressed concern about legislation that they view as restricting voting rights. They included the owner of the Atlanta Falcons, who also co-founded Home Depot, the chairwoman of the Starbucks board, and the CEO of AMC Entertainment, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, a Yale School of Management professor who helped organize the meeting, told the Washington Post that the corporate leaders on the call “felt very strongly that these voting restrictions are based on a flawed premise and are dangerous.” “There was a defiance of the threats that businesses should stay out of politics,” he continued. “They were obviously rejecting that even with their presence. But they were there out of concern about voting restrictions not being in the public interest.”
Coca-Cola required ID to enter their 2020 shareholding meeting, Citibank requires ID to open a new account, AMC requires an ID to see an R-rated movie, Delta requires a photo ID to board a plane, and the list goes on.
Voter ID is among the most popular policies that there exists polling data on. According to polling from the Associated Press, 72% of American adults approve of requiring photo ID to vote – with most Republicans and Democrats supporting it. Only 24% of Democrats actually oppose photo ID, but if your impression of the issue was from liberal media pundits alone, you’d assume that 100% of Democrats opposed it (and would immediately brand you a racist for supporting it).
