Discovering Wasserman Schultz's Selective Memory

MRCTV's Alicia Powe and Katie Yoder confronted DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) about her claim last June that Republicans want to 'literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow' by enforcing voter ID laws. In Wasserman Schultz's opinion, voter ID laws prevent citizens 'more likely to vote for Democratic candidates,' such as blacks and minorities, from visiting the polls.

Wasserman Schultz denies ever making the Jim Crow reference -- then suddenly is 'really late' for a phone call.

MRCTV caught up with Wasserman Schultz at Rep. Eleanor Norton's women forum, “Opportunities & Challenges for a New Generation of Women,” in honor of women's history month at the Rayburn House Office Building, Tuesday. The forum hosted Sandra Fluke and Dr. Avis Jones-DeWeever as well.

While the event was meant to emphasize Women's History Month, Del. Norton (D-DC) focused on the 'awakened' women of today -- the women who 'epitomize how women are seizing new opportunities' in her view. As Powe and Yoder discovered, conservative women didn't fit such a description.
