Tesla Motors Can’t Email Customers, Says North Carolina Law
since they were voted for by Republicans in a Republican administration?
A new law passed by the North Carolina state Senate would apparently make it illegal for Tesla Motors to e-mail its customers, Voelcker writes. The law is an effort to prevent what the North Carolina Automobile Dealers’ Association terms ‘unfair competition’ by Tesla Motors.
Just like voter suppression efforts at the state level where Republicans are in charge, this is a bald-faced effort to change the terms of competition in a local market. “Tesla” is a “new-fangled” company that is easily associated with “modern society” symbolized by President Obama. Just like many local efforts, one cited above - voter suppression, and others like restrictions on abortion, many of these efforts will be constitutionally challenged at SCOTUS. And will be found unconstitutional unless self purported “Constitutionalist” but maybe soon to be proven to be so, “Legislative Activist” Judge Scalia wins.
