McConnell to CEOs: ‘Stay out of politics.’ Republicans threaten businesses opposing Georgia voting law

WASHINGTON — Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell denounced the opposition corporations and sports associations have expressed about a recent Georgia voting law, warning that firms should “stay out of politics.”

“I found it completely discouraging to find a bunch of corporate CEOs getting in the middle of politics,” McConnell said during a Monday press conference. “My advice to the corporate CEOs of America is to stay out of politics. Don’t pick sides in these big fights.”

While proponents of the law argue the changes were necessary to ensure election security, voting rights advocates argue the law will disenfranchise minority voters and lead to “a new Jim Crow” era in the state.
