The Georgia people are awesome. After their Republican-led state legislators put into law draconian voter laws, these amazing people took up the mantle and went higher. The state’s new GOP law severely hampers voter access, especially those who would likely vote Democratic. It is the only way Republicans across American can win, by cheating.

The GOP legislators of Georgia decided to put in a fix that would make voting hours dramatically shorter. People would have to take a day off to vote, because the lines would last up to and over 10 hours. Then came the kicker. No one could provide voters water in the sweltering Georgia heat. Now, that is illegal. But here is what the Democrats decided to do.

After the 2020 election in Georgia literally won the U.S. Senate for Democrats, Republicans were determined to yank it back by hook or by crook. So Democratic activists went to the major corporations headquartered in Atlanta, such as Delta Airlines and the Coca-Cola Company. Their pleas fell on hard-of-hearing ears. Then, something remarkable happened.

Top-level black CEOs took out a full-page ad in The New York Times calling out the cruel laws. Embarrassed, the corporations decided they were voter-friendly after all. They began standing behind the activists, but after the law had already passed in Georgia.  The people of Georgia called upon the corporations to take their influence to Washington, D.C.

In that momentum, Apple CEO Tim Cook took the Democrats’ challenge and put his considerable power behind the effort. Cook came from Alabama, and he has always had an interest in civil rights. He tweeted:

‘The floodgates have opened: Apple CEO Tim Cook, an Alabama native with a lifelong interest in civil rights, joins condemnations of Georgia’s new voting law in a statement to Axios.’Screen-Shot-2021-04-01-at-8.25.39-AM Apple CEO Tim Cook Pressures GOP To Change GA Voter Suppression Corruption Crime Featured Politics Top Stories
