I don’t think public hangings and voter suppression are good subjects for votes but a Mississippi senator does. I hope she loses the runoff.
the thing about states with no meaningful political competition is the people who make it to the top are often huge dopes https://t.co/fDL20ebhCo

Another comment gets Cindy Hyde-Smith in hot water. Her campaign responds: “Obviously Sen. Hyde-Smith was making a joke and clearly the video was selectively edited.” https://t.co/Z8a9YnlZo4

Asked about the racial controversy over a fellow Republican referring to a “public hanging” while running against a Black man, Mississippi’s governor asks why people aren’t outraged about a real problem, the “genocide” perpetrated by Black women getting abortions. https://t.co/47cdkaJfcC

MS Senator Cindy Hyde Smith said if there is a "public hanging," she'd want to be there in the "front row."
Why is U.S. Senator talking about being at a public hanging? What century are we in?
VOTE HER OUT.
