Jenny Horne's "I Am Descendant Of Jefferson Davis" Lie Lives On

From Sunday's News and Observer Editorial calling for Southerners to give up on the "lost cause":

Jenny Horne is a 42-year-old lawyer from Summerville, S.C., who happens to be a descendant of Confederate president Jefferson Davis. She is also a “conservative values” Republican state representative. During the debate Wednesday night over removing a Confederate flag from the Capitol grounds in Columbia, an issue that arose after the murders of nine people in a Charleston church last month, it appeared that House members might be about to pull away from the issue.

The fact is Ms. Horne is not a descendant of Jefferson Davis, in fact she's not even remotely related.

Her raging discourse disgraced every one of her fellow representatives by lying to each of them on the record. This was not small slip of the tongue, rather a bold faced lie to grab attention and raise herself up in the eyes of fellow republicans. 

Now she tells The State newspaper that she is considering a run for the US House of representatives.

Cedar's Take: I suppose she'll fit right in.

Actually 4:27 the South has indeed risen. While cities like Detroit, St. Louis, Chicago and Baltimore crumble Atlanta, Charleston and Charlotte have created massive amounts of wealth, housing, jobs, and home to the arts and sports like no where else.

Crime compared to the negro run cities up north is absent and while there are concerns the a white dominated city government like Charleston is racist, there were no riots even when a gun crazed killed executed nine Negros, in cold blood.

Seems some of the Confederacy saw the "Union" flag much the same as the Battle flag is viewed by some today.

It very well may be that she was told as a child that she was a descendant of Jefferson Davis, and she believed it. Or it might be that she is a child of a side branch of Davis's family line. Then her family "adopted" the Confederate president as an ancestor. Children usually just accept family stories as true. There's nothing sinister about it, just misinformation passed down through the generations.

Well, 7:52, in the days of the internet and, lies such as this are exposed in only minutes. Still waiting on the media and this lying sack of poo to retract the falsehoods.
Can you imagine hiring this beast as your lawyer, then hearing her tell such fabrications on a public stage, and not retracting them!! Good bye hard earned money and any chance of winning any legal arguments prestned by someone so consumed by a lie.

Obviously she needs to ease up on the bacon and donuts. As a lawyer she needs to build on her word skills. Anyone with 1/2 a brain could have said, "I've been told I'm a descendant of Jefferson Davis" and that would have been enough to slide on by.

But this was bold face lie.

Nice to see someone from her generation that actually has a conscious and is aware that some of her ancestors were horrible people!
