Georgia’s Lt. Governor Threatens Delta for Cutting NRA Ties
Georgia’s lieutenant on Monday publicly threatened Delta, a private company headquartered in Atlanta, for its decision to end discounts for National Rifle Association members. “I will kill any tax legislation that benefits @Delta unless the company changes its position and fully reinstates its relationship with @NRA,” Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle tweeted. “Corporations cannot attack conservatives and expect us not to fight back.” Delta and United Airlines both severed marketing ties with the NRA over the weekend, joining a host of companies like Enterprise, Symantec, and First Bank of Omaha to end discount partnerships with the powerful gun lobby.
