Carter Slams MLB for All-Star Game Move

Congressman Earl L. 'Buddy' Carter (R-Ga.) released the following statement after the MLB announced that it is moving the 2021 All-Star Game out of Atlanta.

'The MLB is absolutely pathetic. The organization has completely caved to the lies of the Left and America's pastime has now become a political tool for the liberal mob. Let's be clear - Georgia will be losing potentially hundreds of millions of dollars because Democrats, including the President of the United States, have been spreading lies about Georgia's Election Integrity Act. Georgians have a deep love for the sport, but this move from the MLB is an attack on both our state and on free and fair elections. Georgians can fight back with their pocketbooks just as I'll be fighting back in Congress.'
