We’ve been waiting on pins and needles for Delta Airlines — whose hub is in Atlanta — to weigh in on Georgia’s new election law.
Well, the wait is over, and let the record show that Delta CEO Ed Bastian is very much against it:
Here is @Delta memo from CEO on Georgia voting bill: “I need to make it crystal clear that the final bill is unacceptable… The entire rationale for this bill was based on a lie: that there was widespread voter fraud in Georgia in the 2020 elections. This is simply not true” pic.twitter.com/1KetMY6Ihh

Why is the CEO of Delta Airlines getting involved in this? https://t.co/lXPQ2zaUIv

Because if not Delta, then who?
Ed Bastian “[needs] to make it crystal clear that the final bill is unacceptable and does not match Delta’s values.” How rude of Gov. Brian Kemp not to take Delta’s feelings into consideration.
Anyway, it’s good to know that going forward, Bastian and Delta will be working tirelessly to ensure that minorities are treated with the dignity and respect they deserve:

Wow, that is great news!
Wait, hold on … breaking news coming in just now:
Care to explain, Delta?
Does Delta even offer people water while waiting in the security line?

Come to think of it, they don’t!
And if you don’t have a Real ID by next year, I think you need 2 forms of ID to fly. White supremacy af.

For shame, Delta. You’re effectively putting people back in chains.
@Delta needs to do away with the “Class” system which is rooted in racism and white supremacy

Answer the question, Ed Bastian. Or we’ll be left with no choice but to conclude that Delta hates minorities.
Until Delta pulls all operations from the state and eats the losses, I'm treating it as BS. https://t.co/JzjV7ICT5J

Treat it as BS because it is BS.

Just to be clear, Democrats are still arguing there was widespread voter suppression in the state in 2018 — a lie without evidence. That argument undermining electoral confidence was promoted by the media and tolerated by corporations. https://t.co/Zhm3tyYn9s

You’re grounded, Delta.
Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp fires back at Delta CEO Ed Bastian for taking cue from ‘partisan activists’ and virtue-signaling about election law https://t.co/shqCQeJa97
