In the wake of MLB’s decision to move the All Star Game and draft from Atlanta, Georgia because of a law requiring voter ID, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said he would be working with other GOP lawmakers to revoke the organization’s anti-trust exemption.
“EXACTLY right,” Cruz tweeted when Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) asked why they still had their exemption. “And @SenMikeLee & I will be working hard to END MLB’s antitrust immunity.”
Cruz and other lawmakers and officials pointed out that the MLB is exhibiting hypocrisy by criticizing a law for requiring voter ID when the organization itself requires patrons show ID in order to pick up Will Call tickets.
Cruz posted a list of MLB sponsors in a separate tweet, saying, “These are MLB’s corporate sponsors, who pressured to pull the All Star game out of Atlanta. Do all of them oppose voter ID? Are all of them willing to be the woke enforcers of the corrupt Democratic Party? And do all hate the 75m who voted for Trump?”
It seems that the MLB’s decision to pull events from Georgia over a misconception of the voting law may end up costing them a lot more than they thought.
