Last week, Job Creators Network filed a complaint against Major League Baseball (MLB) in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York over the economic damage caused by the League's decision to move the 2021 All-Star Game from Atlanta because of a recent election law signed by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp (SB 202). ABC news reported:
The complaint says the metro Atlanta area has suffered “staggering” financial losses from relocating the game, citing how more than 8,000 hotel reservations have been canceled. More than 41,000 MLB fans were expected to attend All-Star game events, it said.Read more

The backlash by woke corporate interests in response to Georgia's new election law got even worse over the weekend, and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell has something to say about it: “We are witnessing a coordinated campaign by powerful and wealthy people to mislead and bully the American people," he said in a statement released on Monday morning.

Last week, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed a sweeping election reform bill into law that strengthens the state's election system. Unsurprisingly, the law was immediately met with criticism from those on the left including President Joe Biden and woke corporate interests who easily caved to pressure. During his first press conference since becoming president (yes, his first), Joe Biden made the ludicrous assertion that Georgia and other states hoping to enact election reforms make "Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle.”Read more
Americans are understandably frustrated with the 2020 election cycle, and trust in our elections is at an all-time low. But as RNLA shared earlier this week, the fairness of the U.S. election system is worth fighting for. Where can you as a Republican lawyer make a difference? Volunteer during the Georgia runoffs for 2 U.S. Senate seats in January. Irregularities cannot be exposed unless poll watchers and absentee ballot counting observers are on the ground to observe what is taking place.Read more
