MLB just moved All-Star Game to a state with tighter voting rules


Major League Baseball has tapped Denver as its replacement All-Star Game site instead of Atlanta — even though Colorado’s voting rules are slightly more restrictive than Georgia’s new ones.

Even without the Peach State’s optional two Sundays for early voting, it offers two more such days than the Centennial State. Both ask for photo ID for absentee ballots, while accepting basically the same substitutes. Both ban electioneering activists from handing out free food or drinks.

The only real plus (by Democrats’ standards) is that Colorado mails out universal absentee ballots (with ID and signature requirements for it to count), but experts say that makes a minimal difference in how many actually vote. (Heck, the New York Times’ Nate Cohn says Georgia’s new law does basically nothing to restrict turnout.)

This makes MLB more woke for shifting the lucrative event from a majority-black city to one that’s less than 10 percent black?

Basically, this shows that baseball’s leaders are not only cowardly for going along with pressure from President Biden and other Democrats, but just plain dumb.
