MILTON, Ga. -- Defeated in his first attempt at re-election this week, Milton City Councilman Alan Tart is crying foul.
"It is politics at its worst," he told 11Alive News on Friday.
Tart is talking about two robo calls that went out to many Milton voters the night before Tuesday's election.
He shared one with 11Alive, which said, in part, "As the only openly gay Democrat in North Fulton, Alan needs every vote to ensure that a progressive voice is heard on the council."
Tart said the calls are fakes, designed to help him lose the election, which he did.
First elected in 2007, he has never hidden the fact that he is gay.
He even has a photo with his partner on his campaign website.
But he never made an issue of it and neither did anyone else until the fake robo calls.
