TYPICAL: Coca-Cola Requires a Valid ID to Attend Its Annual Shareholders Meeting But Disparages Georgia for Mandating an ID When Voting

What’s good for Coke is not good for others.

Coca-Cola came out strong against Georgia’s new law which helps ensure free and fair elections in the state:

“After having time to now fully understand all that is in the bill, coupled with discussions with leaders and employees in the Black community, it’s evident that the bill includes provisions that will make it harder for many underrepresented voters, particularly Black voters, to exercise their constitutional right to elect their representatives. That is wrong,” CEO Ed Bastian said in a memo sent to all Delta employees worldwide. His first statement praised aspects of the new law, and said it “improved considerably during the legislative process.”

Hours later, Coca-Cola’s CEO joined Delta’s in condemning the legislation, calling it a “step backwards” in an interview with CNBC.

“This legislation is wrong and needs to be remedied, and we will continue to advocate for it, both in private and now even more clearly in public,” Quincy said. “The reality is many things are improved and done and achieved in private without having to take a public stand, but in this case, it does not work, clearly, and so we’re being more forceful in our public position.”

But like most liberals, rules are only good for themselves but not for others.  Per a quick review of the requirements to attend CocaCola’s Annual meeting, an individual can only participate after providing an ID:

In addition, Coca-Cola should have studied up and seen that a material majority of Americans believe Americans should have to provide an ID in order to vote.

Coke really messed up on this one. This was a very, very bad move for so many reasons.
