Dozens of chief executives and other business leaders gathered virtually on Zoom to scheme up new methods to undermine voter ID laws being considered across the United States.

According to the Washington Post, the virtual gathering involved over 100 corporate leaders plotting their moves to fight legislation on election security over the weekend.

Executives from major airlines, retailers and manufacturers — plus at least one NFL owner — talked about potential ways to show they opposed the legislation, including by halting donations to politicians who support the bills and even delaying investments in states that pass the restrictive measures, according to four people who were on the call, including one of the organizers, Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, a Yale management professor.
