Debbie Wasserman Schultz Denies Comparing Voter ID to Jim Crow...Even Though She Did


"That's not what I said."

The Media Research Center's MRC TV caught Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz in what may have either been a case of selective memory or a simple lie when they caught the Florida Congresswoman at the Rayburn House Office Building.

When asked by reporter Alicia Powe if she's compared GOP attempts to institute Voter ID laws to the Jim Crow period, Wassermann Schultz walked away after saying, "That's not what I said."

Except for the part where she not only did, but apologized for it the same day that she did.

Jim Crow was the wrong analogy to use. But I don't regret calling attention to the efforts in a number of states with Republican dominated legislatures, including Florida, to restrict access to the ballot box for all kinds of voters, but particularly young voters, African Americans and Hispanic Americans.
