Fascinating report at AJC:
A witness to a heated grocery store encounter between state Rep. Erica Thomas and a man she accused of uttering racist comments told authorities she didn’t hear him make those remarks, according to a Cobb County police report.
A Publix employee told a Cobb County officer that she witnessed part of the conversation and heard Thomas “continuously tell Eric Sparkes to ‘Go back where you came from!’” but did not hear Sparkes utter those words to Thomas.
In a tearful video, Thomas accused Sparkes of using that phrase, which echoes a tweet by President Donald Trump that sparked a national uproar. Her account quickly went viral and triggered a wave of support and backlash.
So this state politician got sworn at because she was trying to use the express lane at a supermarket despite having too many items. She then goes home and makes a video where she claims Sparkes told her to “go back to where you come from”, insinuating he was a racist motivated by Donald Trump.
In fact the witnesses say she is the one who said that (multiple times) in response to being called out for her improper use of the express lane.
Sparkes happens to be Latino Democrat!
It seems to be some sort of psychological condition for people to try and make themselves into a victim.
