Georgia Democratic Lawmaker Appears To Be Caught Lying About Alleged Racist Encounter
2019-07-22
[DAILYCALLER] A Georgia state lawmaker appears to have been caught lying about her allegation that she was told to “go to back to where you came from” by a white customer in an Atlanta grocery store.

On Friday, Erica Thomas, a Democrat, alleged that a “white man” called her a “lazy son of a b*tch” and told her to “go back” to where she came from.

On Sunday, Eric Sparkes stepped forwarded and claimed he was the man that Thomas was referring to in the grocery store. He denied ever making any racially charged insults towards Thomas and said he only called her a “lazy b*itch” because she had too many items in the express checkout lane.

Sparkes told reporters that he is a Democrat and a Hispanic American who vehemently opposes President Trump. He added that Thomas was only doing this to help further her political career.

Later, Thomas appeared to walk back her claims saying that Sparkes may not have exactly told her to go back to her country.

#4  Over the years I've had several encounters with people at the grocery store or the bank who a erred "they were in a hurry" and wanted to go ahead of me. I told ever one of them that if they were "in a hurry" the bank or grocery store was not the place to be. Then I told them it was their right as an American to stand in line behind me. Got applause more than once.

#3  actually, she had 20 items in the "10 items-or-less" express line with empty checkstands adjacent. "Lazy Bitch" is better than what I'd call her
