PolitiFact: No, Stacey Abrams didn't support pulling the MLB All-Star game out of Atlanta

As we recall, Stacey Abrams did come out against pulling the Major League Baseball All-Star game out of Atlanta to protest Georgia’s new “voter suppression” law that has proved to be anything but. This, though, was after she learned of the millions of dollars that it would cost black-owned businesses. PolitiFact says Wednesday that Abrams didn’t support MLB’s boycott, despite what Chris Carr, a Republican who is running for a new term as Georgia’s attorney general, tweeted.


Fact-checker Louis Jacobson says “if your time is short”:

Both before and after the league decided to move the All-Star Game away from Atlanta, Abrams threw cold water on the notion of a boycott — in a Twitter video, in comments to the leading newspaper in Atlanta, and in an op-ed in USA Today.

Oh yeah, we remember that op-ed in USA Today … Fox News reported on it, saying, “USA Today appeared to have bizarrely allowed retroactive edits of an op-ed written by prominent Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams in an effort to water down her previous justification for boycotts after MLB moved its All-Star Game from Atlanta.”

Here’s CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale telling the same story back in 2021:

Also from 2021:


Atlanta Journal-Constitution political reporter Greg Bluestein also weighed in at the time, citing the USA Today op-ed:

Jen Psaki also tried to distance President Joe Biden from the decision to move the game after he’d called the new law “Jim Crow on steroids.”


Eventually, Abrams said she was “disappointed” by MLB’s decision to move the game.
