Georgia Dem Demands Arrest, Victim Hints At Defamation Claim

Although she didn’t remember exactly what the man said, Erica Thomas has now changed her story again and wants the man she apparently harassed to be charged by police.

This woman is a bully.

Georgia State Representative Erica Thomas just doesn’t know when to shut up.

There’s no law against being ‘racist,’ but there are laws about lying ad making up lies about people… that’s defamation.

Although she thinks (like all democrats) that rules don’t apply to her… and she has changed her story more than once about a so-called racist accusation… now she has changed her mind again and wants criminal charges brought against a man who had the ill fortune to be near her… and white.

Thomas is now demanding that police charge Eric Sparkes for a supposed comments that said to “go back.”

The Washington Examiner reported:

Thomas told WSB-TV about her demand that Eric Sparkes be charged after a press conference in which she said she was “not backtracking” her initial claim.

The Georgia Democrat originally claimed Friday that Sparkes had confronted her in a Publix grocery store checkout line and told her to “go back to where you came from.”

Thomas appeared initially to backtrack the claim on Saturday, saying in an interview: “I don’t know if he said ‘go back,’ or those types of words … I don’t know if 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.”

“So you don’t remember exactly what he said?” a reporter asked Thomas.

“No, no, definitely not. But I know it was ‘go back’ because I know I told him to ‘go back,'” the lawmaker responded.

Sparkes has argued Thomas’ version of the story is “untrue” and that the worst thing he said was to call her a “bitch” for having too many items in the express checkout.

“That’s all I said after that, and I walked out of Publix,” he said, adding that he is of Cuban descent. “Her words stating on [Facebook] in her video, stating I told her she needs to go back where she came from, are untrue.”

Sparkes responded to Thomas’ press conference by saying he was considering a defamation lawsuit against the lawmaker.

“Ms. Thomas has taken an innocuous situation that began on my part to be about being inconsiderate and turned into a national case about race over night,” Sparkes said in a statement Monday. “Ms. Thomas accuses me of telling her to go back to wherever. Those words were never spoken. She backtracked slightly and now is changing her story. I am in the process of exploring with attorneys a defamation lawsuit against her.”

Eric Sparkes’ statement continues: “Ms. Thomas accuses me of telling her to go back to whereever. Those words were never spoken. She backtracked slightly and now is changing her story. I am in the process of exploring with attorneys a defamation lawsuit against her.”

Here’s the real truth: This democrat tried to break the rules. Sparkes called her on it, so like others of her ilk, she decided to claim victimhood over nothing and make up a story about ‘racism.’

Hopefully, the real victim of will sue for defamation and others will come forward who saw the incident and expose this liar.
