McConnell Blasts Corporations for Using Economic Blackmail to Spread Disinformation

“We are witnessing a coordinated campaign by powerful and wealthy people to mislead and bully the American people,” said Senate Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in a written statement on Monday.

McConnell was referring to the growing number of corporations, including Coca-Cola, JP Morgan and Delta Airlines who have all condemned the new election legislation law passed in Georgia.

“The Washington Post has repeatedly debunked White House lies about legislation in Georgia: ‘In reality, Election Day hours were not changed and the opportunities to cast a ballot in early voting were expanded.’ Plenty of Democrat-run states allow fewer days of early voting than the new Georgia law requires. More than 70 percent of Americans, including a majority of Democrats and a supermajority of independents, favor commonsense voter I.D. requirements; even so, Georgia will accept alternatives to driver’s licenses to verify absentee voters. All the facts disprove the big lie,” continued McConnell.

“It’s jaw-dropping to see powerful American institutions not just permit themselves to be bullied, but join in the bullying themselves,” ” noted McConnell. “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. There is no consistent or factual standard being applied here. It’s just a fake narrative gaining speed by its own momentum.”
