Conservative group representing small businesses to sue MLB for deciding to move all-star game out of Atlanta

A conservative group representing small businesses is now planning to file lawsuit with the MLB Player’s Union.

The group, who has over 30 partners ranging from the National Restaurant Association the Job Creators Network, say that the MLB’s decision to move the Allstar game out of Atlanta was wrong. The MLB moved the Allstar game out of Georgia over a controversial new voter law passed in the state. The game is now supposed to be played in Denver, Colorado, despite Colorado having fewer voting days than Georgia and also requiring ID to vote. The group filed lawsuit on Tuesday morning alleging that the decision to move the game cost Atlanta small businesses much needed revenue.

Alfredo Ortiz, president of the Job Creators Network, has launched a high-profile campaign against the MLB. Ortiz has held protests against the MLB in front of their headquarters in Manhattan. Ortiz mocked commissioner Rob Manfred as having “all strikes and no balls” for caving into left-wing groups who denounced the new voter law as being overly restrictive on minority voter. Many left leaning groups have argued that getting an ID is too difficult for African Americans. 69 percent of African Americans support voter ID according to Rasmussen.
