GOP Racist Cindy Hyde-Smith Return MLB $$$

Message 22 of 22

Major League Baseball wants the campaign of Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) to return a $5,000 donation, ESPN reported on Sunday.

 

An MLB spokesperson told an ESPN reporter the donation was made in connection with an event league lobbyists were asked to attend. The league “has requested that the contribution be returned,” the spokesperson said.

 

The money was given the campaign through the league’s political action committee that operates under the commissioner’s office.

 

Other major organizations, including Walmart, AT&T, Leidos, Union Pacific and Boston Scientific, have made similar requests for the return of donations from the lawmaker’s campaign after reports surfaced that she recently made a joke about attending a hypothetical “public hanging.”

 

The remark, which she made on the campaign trail, drew heavy criticism in a state with an ugly history of terrorizing blacks with lynchings.
