Over the weekend, more than 100 corporate executives and leaders met on Zoom to discuss ways to take action against the new election security laws being discussed across the country, including the law passed in Georgia last month, according to the Washington Post.
“Executives from major airlines, retailers and manufacturers — plus at least one NFL owner — talked about potential ways to show they opposed the legislation, including by halting donations to politicians who support the bills and even delaying investments in states that pass the restrictive measures,” people on the call told the Washington Post.
The Post reported that the meeting was largely led by “Kenneth Chenault, the former chief executive of American Express, and Kenneth Frazier, the chief executive of Merck, who told the executives that it was important to keep fighting what they viewed as discriminatory laws on voting.”
“A statement could come early this week, the people said and would build on one that 72 Black executives signed last month in the wake of changes to Georgia’s voting laws,” The Wall Street Journal reported. “Mr. Chenault told executives on the call that several leaders had signaled they would sign on, including executives at PepsiCo Inc., PayPal Holdings Inc., T. Rowe Price Group Inc. and Hess Corp., among others, according to the people.”
The election security law passed in Georgia has generated controversy after lies from President Biden and other leftists, who have falsely claimed the bill restricts legitimate voting and “ends voting hours early.”
An analysis of the bill by Stephen Fowler of Georgia Public Broadcasting found that “One of the biggest changes in the bill would expand early voting access for most counties, adding an additional mandatory Saturday and formally codifying Sunday voting hours as optional.”
Charles Stewart III, an election expert at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, also examined Georgia’s election security bill on behalf of the Washington Post, and he claimed the bill expanded early voting.
