    Michael Dell, founder, chairman and CEO of Dell Technologies, based in Round Rock, Texas, has joined American Airlines CEO Doug Parker in speaking out against Texas Retrumplicans' proposed voting restrictions. Retrumplicans in 43 states are trying to make it harder for minorities to vote. They will be facing strong opposition – and lawsuits. Georgia and Texas are just the beginning.

    Georgia Governor Brian Kemp denounced MLB's decision as an "attack on our state." Here's something to think about, Governor: Your state's new voting restrictions are an attack on minorities and Democrats. You and all the other "win-at-all-costs" Retrumplicans have no shame.

    Delusional Donald, who continues to insist he won the 2020 Presidential election but it was "stolen" from him, has called for a boycott of "baseball and all of the woke companies that are interfering with free and fair elections." Those are strange words coming from a man who spent several months trying to interfere with "free and fair elections" and now supports Georgia's new restrictive voting laws which also interfere with "free and fair elections."

    McConnell is not only making threats, he's calling the patriotic Americans who are opposed to voting restrictions "far-left mobs." Wow. But of course McConnell is one of those "win-at-all-costs" Retrumplicans who have no shame.

    'Stay out of politics,' McConnell tells CEOs, warns of 'consequences'
    Reuters, Apr 5 2021 11:47 AM

    Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell lashed out at corporate America today, warning CEOs to stay out of the debate over a new voting law in Georgia that has been criticized as restricting votes among minorities and the poor. In a sign of a growing rift in the decades-old alliance between the conservative party and US corporations, McConnell said, “My advice to the corporate CEOs of America is to stay out of politics. Don’t pick sides in these big fights. Corporations will invite serious consequences if they become a vehicle for far-left mobs to hijack our country from outside the constitutional order."

    Retrumplicans continue to insist their proposed voting restrictions are all about "election integrity." They will never acknowledge that the 2020 Presidential election was the most safe and secure in our nation's history, nor will they ever admit that the true purpose of the restrictions is to make it much harder for minorities to cast a ballot. By the way, 80% of black voters voted for Biden in 2020. Now you know why Retrumplicans want to discourage blacks from voting. The "win-at-all-costs" Retrumplicans have no shame.

    As in Georgia, Texas Democrats look to mobilize businesses against voting restrictions
    Yahoo News, Apr 6 2021 2:29 PM

    With new voting restrictions making their way through the Texas legislature, Democrats in the state are seeking to replicate the pressure campaign waged by activists and businesses in Georgia to stop the measures from becoming law. A coalition of activists and politicians has called on major corporations with a presence in Texas to stop making political contributions to any state lawmakers who have supported Senate Bill 7, which would limit early voting hours, eliminate drive-through voting centers and roll back an expansion of mail-in voting that was allowed in 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic.

    “Texas is already the hardest state in the country to vote in,” said Sarah Labowitz, policy director with the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas. The bill, which has been introduced in the Texas legislature, would also criminalize any attempt to help people fill out or deliver their mail-in ballot, she said.

    A Republican – a Republican! – admits that Georgia's new voting restrictions were enacted in response to the lies spread by Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani.

    Georgia's GOP lieutenant governor says Giuliani's false fraud claims helped lead to restrictive voting law
    CNN, Apr 8 2021 12:47 AM

    A top Georgia Republican said Wednesday that Rudy Giuliani's false claims of election fraud – which were presented before state lawmakers – created momentum for a package of voting rights restrictions that recently became state law. "This is really the fallout from the 10 weeks of misinformation that flew in from Donald Trump," Georgia Lieutenant Governor Geoff Duncan said on CNN's New Day. "I went back over the weekend to really look at where this really started to gain momentum in the legislature, and it was when Rudy Giuliani showed up in a couple of committee rooms and spent hours spreading misinformation and sowing doubt."

    Giuliani appeared before Georgia state lawmakers in December when he was serving on Trump's legal team. Giuliani tried, unsuccessfully, to convince legislators to convene a special session to overturn Joe Biden's victory in the state. Giuliani falsely claimed that thousands of dead people voted in the Georgia election, insisted that voting machines had changed people's votes and suggested thousands of others had voted illegally.

    One of the most fundamental rights in a democracy is the right to vote. Retrumplicans are using Donald Trump's false claims of widespread voter fraud and a "rigged" and "stolen" election as justification to make it much more difficult for minorities (who tend to vote Democratic) to cast a ballot. The "win-at-all-costs" Retrumplicans have no shame – and they don't like being criticized by the nation's CEOs.

    Retrumplicans are obsessed with restricting voting rights in the states, counties and cities which are heavily Democratic. They say they're concerned with "election integrity" – but they don't seem overly concerned with "election integrity" in the states, counties and cities which Donald Trump won in 2020. The "win-at-all-costs" Retrumplicans have no shame. All they care about is Donald Trump and the Retrumplican party.

    In Texas, GOP voting bills zero in on Democratic Houston
    HuffPost, Apr 15 2021 9:44 PM

    The nation’s next big voting battle underway in Texas would outlaw 24-hour polling places and drive-thru voting and make it a crime for elections officials to mail unsolicited absentee ballot applications. Put another way: Everything Houston – the state’s biggest Democratic stronghold– did to expand ballot access last year, when the threat of the coronavirus made voting in-person more hazardous.

    Amid a GOP-led campaign to tighten voting laws, Republican lawmakers in Texas have been unusually explicit in zeroing in on Houston and surrounding Harris County as they push to tighten the state’s voting laws. A sweeping package known as House Bill 6 is awaiting a full vote and Republican Governor Greg Abbott supports the bill. The effort is one of the clearest examples of how the GOP’s nationwide campaign to tighten voting laws can target Democrats, even as they insist the measures are not partisan.

    Bishop Reginald Jackson says The Home Depot has remained "silent and indifferent" to Georgia's new restrictive voting laws which will make it much harder for minorities to vote. Retrumplicans denounce the call for a boycott as "cancel culture" but they have absolutely no problem with restrictive voting laws which will make it much harder for minorities to vote.

    Retrumplicans in Georgia and Montana have passed restrictive voting laws that will make it much harder for minorities to cast a ballot. Retrumplicans in 40 other sites are planning similar restrictions. One proposal in Florida would would require voters to reapply for absentee ballots for every election, rather than remain on an absentee voting list. Another proposal would bar outside groups from providing water to voters within 150 feet of a polling place. The "win-at-all-costs" Retrumplicans have no shame. They insist their proposals are all about "election integrity." They're lying. Their proposals are all about making it much more difficult for minorities and Democrats to vote..
