Mason Carter Condemns the Frederick News-Post for Smear Article

Mason Carter, candidate for Frederick County Council District 5

FREDERICK, MD—On July 15, the liberal hack journalists at The Frederick News-Post attempted to smear me as a homophobe. Taking my words out of context, the reporter claims I called homosexuals “disgusting,” which could not be further from the truth. I helped campaign on the behalf of Heath Barnes, a gay Republican, who recently won his election to become Burgess of Woodsboro, and have much respect for him. During my interview, I called certain teachings within the family life sections disgusting, such as teaching middle schoolers how to preform anal sex, not homosexuality.  I understand that, as a councilman, I would have no control over the curriculum, but rather I can try to hold the Board of Education accountable for these teachings.

Along with their attempt to slander me, the Frederick News-Post left out important details from my interview. The reporter failed to mention prior political experience in an effort to discredit myself and our movement. I campaigned on the behalf of Neil Parrott in 2020 during his bid for U.S. Congress against David Trone, and even, briefly, helped manage a race in the City of Frederick. Instead of focusing on my priorities as a councilman, which includes lowering the property tax, cutting wasteful spending, and backing the blue, the reporter focused solely on my age and a single opinion that I have no control over.

The misrepresentation of myself by the Frederick News-Post is neither fair nor acceptable. The media in Frederick County understands that they cannot control me, as I am not a part of the establishment, so they feel as though they must take me out. I refuse to allow the mob to discourage our movement to Save Frederick County, we will continue this campaign and be stronger than ever before. We will not be silenced.

I urge those who wish to learn more about the incident to contact my campaign. All lines of communication can be found at my campaign website,
