"That is a phrase that was used in our neighborhood that meant, get your act together," Carter said to jeers and boos. "That's exactly what those senators need to do. They need to get their act together because, right now, they're holding up health care."
But in Georgia's LGBT community, Carter may take more heat for remarks made a day earlier about President Donald Trump's Twitter-issued ban on transgender troops. "I don't want 'em serving in the military. I'm sorry," the Pooler Republican said according to a Twitter report from a Washington Post reporter that is only now circulating.
