Can't pull a Gen Con on Georgia

The pandemic makes it a lot harder for private organizations to apply pressure to Georgia over its horrendous new election law. Sporting events can threaten to pull out, but sporting events during a pandemic don't bring massive crowds of visitors like they used to. So threats like that don't pack as much of an economic punch. Organizations can say they won't schedule their conventions in the state, but no one is having big conventions anywhere these days.

Remember when Gen Con got Mike Pence to reverse himself on one of his biggest personal issues? That won't work again until the pandemic is over.
