Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) told Major League Baseball in an op-ed that it owes the state of Georgia an apology for listening to Stacey Abrams and moving the All-Star game out of the state.

Abrams did “what she does best: she spouted off false claims of voter suppression, attempting to paint Republicans in Georgia as racist, bigoted, and evil,” Collins said, noting that she still hasn’t admitted she lost the governor’s race in 2018.
“Georgians are sick and tired of Abrams using false claims of voter suppression as a political weapon,” he went on, noting that lies about the voting bill have led to companies like Delta, Coca-Cola and MLB removing business from the state.
He also pointed out that the companies are not denying business in states like New York and California that don’t even have early voting.
