Heritage Action Executive Director: Stacey Abrams Should Refund Georgians $100 Million for Loss of All-Star Game

Press Releases · Jul 13, 2021

WASHINGTON — Today, Heritage Action Executive Director Jessica Anderson called on Stacey Abrams and her Fair Fight PAC to compensate Georgians for the estimated $100 million in revenue losses from the relocation of the MLB All-Star Game:

“Last week, it was reported that Stacey Abrams’ political action committee, Fair Fight, has earned over $100 million since her defeat in Georgia’s 2018 gubernatorial race, more than any other 2022 candidate. Coincidentally, Georgians lost $100 million when the MLB moved their All-Star Game from Georgia to Colorado after Abrams compared a new Georgia law to 'Jim Crow.' Stacey Abrams should send the $100 million her PAC has pocketed to the people of Georgia to make up for the damage she has caused.

Stacey Abrams was the single loudest voice in fabricating outrage over Georgia’s Election Integrity Act. She called the new law “Jim Crow” at least ten times after its passage, wrote that “boycotts work” in a national op-ed, and misled voters about the law’s provisions, according to the Washington Post. Her “voter suppression” myth was responsible for the MLB’s decision to move the All-Star Game and she should rectify the damage caused by her words.

Instead of spending more money on a misinformation campaign about voting provisions three-quarters of Georgians approve of, Abrams’ well-funded PAC could put that money to good use to restore the workers, small businesses, and families hurt by the destructive boycotts aimed at the people of Georgia.”
