MLB stands up for Georgia voter rights, pulls all-star game from Atlanta
CA, 05 Apr 2021
Atlanta lost Major League Baseball‘s (MLB) summer All-Star Game on Friday over the league’s objections to sweeping changes to Georgia voting laws that critics — including the CEOs of Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines and Coca-Cola — have condemned as being too restrictive.
The decision to pull the July 13 game from Atlanta’s Truist Park amounts to the first economic backlash against Georgia for the voting law that Republican Gov. Brian Kemp quickly signed into law March 25.
The law includes new restrictions on voting by mail and greater legislative control over how elections are run.
Jennifer Johnson explains.
