'Please, Jesus, not Georgia': Jasmine Crockett fact-checks GOP colleagues over voter fraud claims
Rep. Jasmine Crockett (D-TX), during a congressional hearing Wednesday, called out her Republican colleagues over their continued allegations of voter fraud.
Led by Committee on House Administration and the Committee on Oversight and Accountability, the joint hearing called "American Confidence in Elections: The Path to Election Integrity in the District of Columbia," was held over lawmakers' claim that "election laws in DC lead to fraud."
During her speech, Crockett said, "Every time we seemingly have a hearing on voting rights, we talking about the fact that people are cheating. So let's talk about who's cheating. I got a few articles."
She asked the witnesses, "Uh, are you familiar with the fact that there was recently a settlement with this little news company called Fox News?"
Vice President of Democracy at The Brennan Center, Wendy Weiser, answered, "Yes."
Crockett replied, "Ok, there we go. I'm running out of time so I'ma keep going. There also was this article — because I don't want us to base anything on Georgia at all — please, Jesus, not Georgia — because Georgia purged 87,000 votes."
Greene interrupted the Democratic congresswoman saying, "Will the gentlewoman yield? I think Georgia matters."
Crockett emphasized, "I will not yield, I'm reclaiming my time," adding, "There were 87,000 people that were purged that were legitimate voters, so no we don't wanna copy off of Georgia."
She then noted, "Also, another GOP voter admits he committed fraud. Another one in Pennsylvania, man who admits he voted for Trump with his dead mom's name because he listened to too much propaganda."
According to The New York Times, last month, Fox News was yet again hit with a defamation lawsuit from Nina Jankowicz, former director of the "short-lived Department of Homeland Security division assigned with coordinating efforts to monitor and address disinformation threats to national security."
Jankowicz claims the right-wing network "promoted lies about her that generated serious threats to her safety and harmed her career prospects."
Furthermore, former President Donald Trump could be prosecuted by Georgia's Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis in the coming months over his efforts to overturn the 2020 election.
