“Our nation is strongest when we stand together,” said a statement from executives including Lions president Rod Wood, Pistons vice chairman Arn Tellem, and Tigers and Red Wings owner Christopher Ilitch.
“We call on our elected officials to adopt these principles as they proceed in the spirit of inclusion and equality,” said the statement.
The disastrous 2020 election administration spurred Republicans in the state legislature to propose a reform bill similar to one recently adopted by Georgia. Both states were hotbeds of election fraud in 2020.
In Michigan, that has led to at least one major audit in a county that acknowledged votes had been flipped from Republican incumbent Donald Trump to Democrat Joe Biden. Cyber-experts have since revealed that the data give strong indications of a weighted algorithm having been programmed into voting machines.
A judge also rebuked Democrat Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson for overstepping her authority by issuing directives to local election officials concerning relaxed signature-verification standards on absentee ballots and other controversial, last-minute decrees.
The proposed bill seeks to close several loopholes following Benson’s and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer‘s partisan usurpation of legislative authority under the pretense of pandemic emergency orders.
It includes measures to secure ballot counting and requires common-sense protocols like photo identification for absentee-ballot applications.
The bill would also ban automatic absentee ballot mailing to residents, which contributed substantially to voter fraud.
Unable to remain impartial on political issues, woke corporate leaders complained about the legislature’s desire to secure honest elections.
In addition to the sports executives, the heads of other Michigan-based industries, including Ford and General Motors executives, also criticized the bill.
“Government must support equitable access to the ballot to ensure that all eligible voters can exercise their rights,” the statement demanded.
“Government must avoid actions that reduce participation in elections—particularly among historically disenfranchised communities, persons with disabilities, older adults, racial minorities and low-income voters,” it continued.
In total, top executives from 30 of Michigan’s largest companies all endorsed the complaint.
Major corporations—eager to woo powerful and influential leftists in politics and the media while deflecting from their own abuses—have shown that they are especially unwilling to associate with anything opposed to the Democrat platform.
Whitmer has said that she plans to veto the bill. However, the legislature could override her veto by taking the legislation to the people of Michigan via a ballot petition drive.
