But it wasn’t as if MLB had a lot of states to choose from. They had to find another state with less restrictive voting laws than Georgia or else they’d look like giant hypocrites. And guess what? Most states have voting laws as strict or stricter than Georgia, even Biden’s home state of Delaware.
They also had to find a state willing to put up with an arrogant leftist sports league that expects local taxpayers to build them stadiums then takes their balls and goes home if they don’t like the laws passed by the representatives of those same taxpayers. And some states are getting fed up with that.
