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.
