    Footage has emerged of the moment a shopper approached a Georgia lawmaker during a grocery store spat in which she claimed he told her 'go back where you came from'. Police said Wednesday they would not charge Eric Sparkes over the incident after an officer's bodycam also showed a witness claiming it was in fact state Rep. Erica Thomas who made the inflammatory remarks and not him. Cobb County police released security video from inside the Publix which shows the moment the two begin to argue in front of shocked shoppers and staff. The clip has no audio but shows...

    The astringently humorless "fact check" squad at Snopes.com just keeps ripping the Babylon Bee website, painting their satire as "misinformation." This time, Ellie Gardey at the Daily Caller forced Snopes to revise their "fact check" and add actual facts. The Bee was mocking Georgia state Rep. Erica Thomas for claiming a man told her to "go back" to where she came from in the Express Lane at the local Publix supermarket. They inserted the eternally gracious staff at Chick-fil-A into the scene for laughs: “Georgia Lawmaker Claims Chick-Fil-A Employee Told Her To Go Back To Her Country, Later Clarifies He...

    Black Georgia state Rep. Erica Thomas, who accused a man of racism and screaming at her to "go back to where you came from" in a heated grocery store confrontation, has doubled down on her original assertion after backtracking over the weekend.

    A Georgia state lawmaker has walked back a significant part of her viral claim that a white man told her to "go back where you came from" during a testy argument in a supermarket checkout lane, after the man denied the encounter unfolded the way she described. The episode, hot on the heels of a national controversy over President Trump's remarks directed at four progressive Democrats, quickly made the rounds on social media. Multiple news organizations on Sunday portrayed the episode as a plausible instance of racism, though the lawmaker already had tried to clarify her accusations.

    Erica Thomas is a member of the Georgia House of Representatives. Clearly, that's not where she wants her political career to end, however. Yesterday, she suddenly claimed on Twitter that a white guy had harassed her at a grocery store, and had even told her to "go back where you came from!" Obviously, this was meant to prove that President Trump's statements about The Squad are contagious. However, the accused man didn't take this lying down. When confronted by Rep. Thomas on camera he didn't take a step back and insisted that she wasn't telling the truth about their confrontation...
