After Major League Baseball (MLB) announced the decision to move their annual All-Star Game from the state of Georgia in protest of its new voter integrity law, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) invited the league to host the event in New York.

Some have blasted Schumer for his statement, noting that the state he represents actually has voting laws that are far more restrictive than those in Georgia.

The New York Post actually noted that the Empire State has eight less days of early voting than Georgia, and unlike Georgia, New York demands voters produce an "excuse" if they wish to vote absentee.

Major League Baseball has announced only that they are searching and weighing their options as to where they can appropriately relocate the game. No timeline has been given for when a decision will be made.
