Here we go again…
Major League Baseball recently announced that they have decided to move the All-Star Game from Atlanta, Georgia to Denver, Colorado.
MLB decided that they wanted to move the game because of Georgia’s recent law that passed aiming at “safeguarding the integrity of their elections.”
However, they are moving the game to Colorado which has even stricter voting regulations. “Colorado requires proof of identification when casting a ballot to vote, but it also has fewer early voting days than Georgia.”
A report from Joel Pollak of Breitbart stated:
‘What I’m worried about is how un-American this whole initiative is. It’s sick. It’s sick … deciding that you’re going to end voting at five o’clock when working people are just getting off work,” [Biden] said during last week’s news conference. The following day, Biden claimed the law ended voting hours early “so working people can’t cast their vote after their shift is over.’
However, Biden’s assertions are not accurate. Election Day hours in Georgia, which are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., have not changed. Those in line by 7 p.m. are permitted to cast their vote.
‘Nothing in the new law changes those rules,’ the Washington Post reported.
Georgia’s law did, however, make changes to early voting, but the Post explained that experts said the ‘net effect was to expand the opportunities to vote for most Georgians, not limit them.’
