(RepublicanPress.org) – Controversy still surrounds the validity of the 2020 presidential election. Numerous allegations of widespread voter fraud, improper ballot counting procedures, and inaccurate voting machines remain unresolved. As a result, more than 45 states have adopted, or are considering, new laws to preserve the integrity of future elections.
Amid those concerns, hundreds of American companies and executives have decided to step into the fray — uninvited, of course. They signed a statement opposing “any discriminatory legislation,” making it more difficult for individuals to vote. It appeared as a full two-page advertisement in The New York Times and The Washington Post’s print editions on Wednesday, April 14.

Business signatories to the letter included Amazon, General Motors, Netflix, and Starbucks, just to name a few. As one might expect, big-tech giants Facebook, Google, and Twitter all signed the statement. Individuals who signed the letter included Warren Buffet and failed Democratic presidential nomination contender Mike Bloomberg.
On the bright side, several of the nation’s most powerful companies declined to add their names to the list, including Coca-Cola, Home Depot, JPMorgan Chase, and Delta.
Several leading Republicans, like former President Donald Trump, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), have condemned companies and executives for opposing the laws.
