Politician Tries To Reinterpret a Grocery Store Incident In Her Favor

It is unlucky when you find yourself stuck in a line at the grocery store, behind someone who appears to be buying for a village.

That is why they have express lanes in most stores. A Georgia man found himself in a similar predicament but the woman in front of him was clearly abusing the 20 items or less policy.

Things became heated as the man lost his temper, but little did he know that the woman in front of him was a Georgia Rep, who decided to use his anger to her advantage.

Rep Erica Thomas claims that the man Eric Sparkes was not only vulgar, he also told her to “go back to where she came from.”

In a tearful Facebook video posted on Friday, Thomas said she had been in the express line at the store because she was nine months pregnant and could not stand for long.

“And this white man comes up to me and says: ‘You lazy son of a bitch,”’ Thomas said, sobbing as she described the confrontation in the video. “He says: ‘You lazy son of a bitch; you need to go back where you came from.”

Sparkes denied making any racially charged comment, saying “I am Cuban”. Thomas confronted Sparkes in front of reporters and said he had “degraded and berated” her.”

Sparkes said he was a Democrat and was being unjustly attacked for political purposes.

“This woman is playing the victim for political purposes because she is a state legislator,” Sparkes told WSB. “I’m a Democrat and will vote Democrat for the rest of my life, so call me whatever you want to believe. For her political purposes, make it black, white, brown, whatever. It is untrue.”

During a later interview, Thomas became a little wishy-washy with the facts.

“He said ‘Go back,’ you know, those types of words. I don’t want to say he said, ‘Go back to your country,’ or ‘Go back to where you came from.’ But he was making those types of references is what I remember,” she later claimed.

To be fair Erica Thomas is nine months pregnant at the time of the incident, and she really should have been given a pass in this case. But despite Sparkes seemingly grouchy nature he still did not deserve to be slandered in this way. At least her nature is honest enough, as it shows in the video that she can’t keep up the ‘go back to your country’ charade.
