MLB Demands Photo ID for Ticket Collections but Boycotts Georgia Over Voter ID Law

Major League Baseball called out by Rep. Nancy Mace over double standard

MLB caved to misleading leftist claims that voter ID is 'racist'

Major League Baseball (MLB) recently caused outrage in its response to calls to boycott the state of Georgia over the newly-introduced voter ID law.

MLB caved to pressure from the Left by moving the All-Star game out of the Peach State.

Democrats and leftists, including Joe Biden, have been pushing misleading claims that requiring photo ID to cast a vote is "racist."

Yet, despite MLB caving to the mob and pulling the All-Star game from Georgia over the law, teams still require fans to show photo ID to pick up their tickets from the Will Call booth.

The league was called out over the double standard on Twitter South Carolina Republican Rep. Nancy Mace.

"Hey @MLB, this you?" she wrote, along with a screenshot of the Will Call policy at mlb.com

The league did not respond to multiple requests for an explanation of its photo ID policy for ticket retrieval.

Proponents of the move to abandon Atlanta’s Truist Park for this year’s All-Star Game have argued that Georgia’s new GOP-backed election integrity law is a form of voter suppression and is racist.

Joe Biden even called it "Jim Crow in the 21st Century."

Georgia’s new law comes after Democrats swept both Senate races in runoff votes and Biden edged out President Trump on Election Day.

The Georgia election reform bill expands the number of early voting days, allows the observation of ballot counting, prohibits ballot harvesting, and continues to allow voters to cast absentee ballots without an excuse, but requires proof of identification, among other measures.

It also gives the State Election Board more authority over counties.

Another feature would block anyone from handing out food and drink to people waiting in line to vote.

The move garnered national attention, with praise from the left and criticism from the right.

President Donald Trump called for a boycott of the national pastime and other 'woke' corporations – while former President Barack Obama praised it as a way to honor the Atlanta Braves’ most famous Hall of Famer.

"There’s no better way for America’s pastime to honor the great Hank Aaron, who always led by example," Obama tweeted Saturday.

Gov. Brian Kemp wrote in a Fox News op-ed Wednesday that Democrats have falsely characterized the bill he signed.

"These reforms have nothing to do with ‘voter suppression' or ‘Jim Crow’," he argued.

"The Election Integrity Act makes it easy to vote by expanding access to the polls and harder to cheat by ensuring the security of the ballot box."
