Let’s see him weasel his way out of this one…
According to The Blaze, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio called out MLB commissioner Rob Manfred for his decision to move the 2021 All Star Game out of Georgia in response to the state’s recently enacted voting laws.
“I write to ask you whether you intend to maintain your membership at Augusta National Golf Club. As you are well aware, the exclusive members-only club is located in the State of Georgia,” Rubio wrote in an open letter to Manfred.
“Last week, you decided that the best way to demonstrate [your] values as a sport is by relocating this year’s All-Star Game from Atlanta because of Georgia’s revised election law,” he added. “It is a decision that will have a bigger impact on countless small and minority owned businesses in and around Atlanta, than the new election law ever will. And one that reeks of hypocrisy.”
