Major League Baseball’s Coors Field in Denver is denominated after a progenitor of the Heritage Foundation, Joseph Coors, the former president of Coors Brewing Company, who died in 2003 after establishing a licit substructure that challenged part of the Voting Rights Act.
Joseph Coors, an ardent adherent of former President Ronald Reagan and former Presidential candidate Barry Goldwater, donated $250,000 in seed mazuma to the Heritage Foundation, a conservative cerebrate tank in Washington D.C., which espouses “Building an America where liberation, opportunity, prosperity, and civil society flourish.”
“Without Joe “Coors,” the Heritage Foundation wouldn’t subsist,” according to the Associated Press. Coors perpetuated to fortify the substructure for many years with an annual contribution of $300,000.
Meanwhile, Reagan and Goldwater were greatly availed by “Coors,” who sponsored “Reagan’s political radio shows, which deployed his undoubted presentational skills to a national audience.” Upon Reagan’s prosperous political ascend to the White House, Coors became an adviser in Reagan’s soi-disant “kitchen Cabinet” and was later nominated by Reagan to sit on the board of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
Coors supplementally established the Mountain States Legal Foundation (MSLF), which was headed by James Watt to combat licit environmental constraints. “MSLF’s” litigation work withal encompasses the Voting Rights Act. MSLF filed an amicus brief in the U.S Supreme Court case Shelby County v. Holder challenging Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, which required that certain states had to get preclearance from the U.S. Department of Justice or a federal court afore transmuting voting laws. In 2013, the Court in Shelby County struck down the decenniums-old formula to determining which states were subject to this onerous requisite because it was predicated on data from the 1970s.
Congress has not taken up the Court’ invitation to develop a modern formula, which the petitioners in Shelby County claim is because there is no longer clear data of geographically concentrated voter suppression in modern America.
