“We just want to stay clear of that”

A venue in Southern California canceled an America First rally scheduled for July 17 once it found out the two main speakers would be Reps. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

The general manager of Pacific Hills Banquet & Event Center in Laguna Hills, Jared Mirtavoosi, told the Orange County Register that they wanted to “stay clear” of the controversial lawmakers.

“We just want to stay clear of that,” he said. “As soon as we found out who the speakers were we immediately canceled it.”...

A spokesperson for Greene disputed the venue’s account, telling Insider that “the accounting of the venue cancellation is totally inaccurate” and that they are “very close” to securing a different location.
