On Saturday, Delta Airlines announced that it was ending its contract for discounted rates with the NRA. And now Georgia's Lt. Governor, Casey Cagle,
is publicly threatening
to take legislative action against Delta.
Let that sink in. The Lt. Governor of Georgia is threatening one of the state's largest employers and an airline that is largely responsible for
making Hartsfield-Jackson the world's busiest airport — to provide discounted services to a right-wing lobbying group or face legislative
Casey's extortion scheme is almost certainly unconstitutional, particularly when you consider that in the Citizens United
right-wing stacked SCOTUS ruled that businesses have much of the same rights to political speech as individuals.
No matter how people feel about tax breaks and other subsidization, I find it really hard to believe that anyone honestly believes that they should be
tied to a political lobbying organization getting kickbacks.
