(AbsoluteNews.com) – In March, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp (R) signed a new election security measure into law. It ensures that only people who are legally allowed to cast ballots do so and protects the elections from fraud related to mail-in voting. There was immediate backlash from Democrats and their ilk in the business and entertainment industries. Recently, the GOP’s top senator told them all off.
On Monday, April 5, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) slammed corporate America for trying to interfere in Georgia’s policies. Recently, a number of CEOs have spoken out about the new voter law and the MLB even moved its All-Star game out of Atlanta to Denver. McConnell said corporations need to “stay out of politics” because if they don’t, their actions could “invite serious consequences if they become a vehicle for far-Left mobs” who want to hijack the country.
Our private sector must stop taking cues from the Outrage-Industrial Complex. Americans do not need or want big business to amplify disinformation or react to every manufactured controversy with frantic left-wing signaling. My full statement: https://t.co/3Ck3qW4Mbe

Georgia has a right to pass the laws that it believes are important, especially when it comes to election integrity. Corporations should worry about protecting their employees and customers, politicians will worry about protecting their constituents. In other words, CEOs should stay in their lane.
