During the U.S. Senate Banking Hearing on Wednesday, Senator Tim Scott from South Carolina challenged the CEOs of America’s largest banks to explain why they signed a statement claiming that Georgia voter legislation was Discriminatory. The CEOs could not answer the pointed question.
As reported in the Washington Examiner, the chief executives of JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, and Citigroup were present at the hearing.
A letter signed by four of the CEOs published in the Washington Post and the New York Times was published when the Georgia law was under attack.
“Picking winners and losers in certain areas, especially in election law, I just want to understand your position on that very important law because I, as a Southerner and African American who voted in the South all of my life, would hate any form of discrimination,” Senator Scott explained. “What part of the law restricted voting rights or was discriminatory?” Scott asked pointedly.
As observed at RAIR Foundation USA:
For all of their wild and slanderous claims of ‘voter suppression,’ the left has yet to produce evidence that individuals who want to vote have been stopped because they are, for example, unable to acquire identification.”
“None of the CEOs of the 6 largest banks in the US were able to share with me why they found Georgia’s election laws to be discriminatory or restrictive,” Senator Tim Scott said on social media. “Silence speaks louder than words,” he continued.
