CEOs plan $$$ threats to lawmakers over voting laws

Top CEOs plan to get dramatically tougher on state legislators over proposed new restrictions on voting:

After a weekend Zoom summit, the CEOs are threatening to withhold campaign contributions and to punish states by yanking investments in factories, stadiums and other lucrative projects.

The call included a long list of business luminaries, including James Murdoch, Ken Chenault, Ken Frazier, LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman, Levi Strauss CEO Chip Bergh, Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, and executives of Delta, United and American Airlines.

Why it matters: After a slow response to Georgia's new limits, corporate America is suddenly making voting access a foremost issue and is going beyond words with sweeping economic threats.

...

A post-summit statement said: "CEOs who participated in a live poll indicated they will re-evaluate donations to candidates supporting bills that restrict voting rights and many would reconsider investments in states which act upon such proposals."

2. I would feel better if they said 'won't' instead of 're-evaluate' or 'reconsider'

Too much wiggle room.
