News leaders don’t need AG voting notices

Case in point: New Hampshire is mulling bills that would make college students ineligible to register to vote at their college address, or vote in N.H. if they maintain a domicile address in another state — it has been slammed as “declaring war on student voting rights” and “making it harder to vote.” In reality, students do not lose the right to vote, they can vote by absentee ballot in their home state. The hardship extends to a walk to the mailbox. But the narrative of voting legislation is under the thumb of Democratic leaders and their allies in the mainstream media. Questions such as “does this legislation actually take away a person’s right to vote?” are not welcome. But for Democrats like Healey, there is no need to scrutinize what a bill actually does — if it’s legislation enacted by a Republican, it’s horrendous.

But who is on which side is open to debate. Opposing the mortgaging of our children’s future by spending and borrowing wildly, and working to ensure the integrity of the electoral process would be considered efforts to protect our democracy. Except if you’re a Democrat. “I think what has been made clear in the last year is there are two forces in this country. Those who are fighting to protect our democracy and those who are trying to undermine it. And I think there’s a business case to be made for involvement in this space,” Healey said.

As the State House News reported, Healey challenged the audience to withhold campaign contributions and support from politicians around the country engaged in efforts to strip certain groups of voting rights, encouraging companies to “create consequences” for state and federal legislators who would seek to make it harder to vote. Attorney General Maura Healey didn’t directly say business leaders should give the GOP a hard no during her address Wednesday to the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce, but the dogwhistles were so loud mutts were bounding over from Boise.

There are a few things to unpack: For one, our business leaders are able to assess politicians on their record and comprehend the details of voting legislation, or any other bills for that matter. They have the ability — and they have the right. Neither they, nor anyone else, needs to have their choices spoon-fed. “I hope you will join me in this because the powerful voice of the business community really makes a difference,” Healey said.

Translation: Democrats good, Republicans bad. Healey said she understood the temptation for business leaders to play both sides and spread political contributions to Democrats and Republicans, but she urged them to think twice about who they’re donating to before giving money. “Know that there are some really bad actors out there who don’t have America’s interests in mind,” she said.
