Georgia Republicans Ban Coke Products After Soda Giant Attacks State Over Election Integrity Law

Coke. Illustrative Editorial

A group of Georgia Republicans have said that they will remove Coke products from their political offices after the soda maker attacked Georgia over its new election integrity law.

The eight Republican leaders sent a letter Saturday to Kevin Perry, the president and CEO of the Georgia Beverage Association, accusing the Coca-Cola company of spreading lies about Georgia’s new elections law and caving to “out of control cancel culture.”

“Your company has made the conscious decision to perpetrate a national dialogue which seeks to intentionally mislead the citizens of Georgia and deepen a divide in our great State,” the letter added. “We have the responsibility to all of Georgia not to engage in those misguided intentions nor continue to support corporations who choose to.”

The letter was signed by GOP state Reps. Victor Anderson, Clint Crowe, Matt Barton, Jason Ridley, Lauren McDonald III, Stan Gunter, Dewayne Hill, and Marcus Wiedower.

Last week, Coca-Cola CEO James Quincy insisted that Georgia’s law was “unacceptable” and added “to be crystal clear and state unambiguously that we are disappointed in the outcome of the Georgia voting legislation.”

Quincy falsely asserted that some measures of the bill “would diminish or deter access to voting.”

“Given Coke’s choice to cave to the pressure of an out of control cancel culture, we respectfully request all Coca-Cola Company products be removed from our office suite immediately.” the lawmakers said. “Should Coke chose to read the bill, share its true intentions and accept their role in the dissemination of mistruths, we would welcome a conversation to rebuild a working relationship.”
