Irate Steve Cohen slams gavel after black Republican demands he not be used as ‘pawn’ for Democrats’ election ‘agenda’



Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen slammed his gavel after Republican North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson told Democrats to “stop using me as a black man as your pawn” to push a liberal narrative on voting.

“We want to have the best election system in the world, in the world. Third-world countries, places like India, where the poverty rate is staggering, they have to show that finger when they go vote,” Robinson said Thursday during a House Judiciary Subcommittee hearing on voting rights.

“It’s time that we modernize our election system in this country and stop playing all these silly games based on race. And please stop using me as a black man as your pawn, and yes, I said it, push your agenda. I’m sick of it. It happened a long time ago in this country,” he continued.

A man is heard then saying, “his time has expired.”

“Mr. Chairman,” Rep. Chip Roy said repeatedly to Cohen in a bid to insert information to the record.

Cohen responded by slamming his gavel and then turning on his microphone.

“So the chairman doesn’t want us to be able to insert stuff in the record?” a man is heard saying.

“Maybe in a few minutes, but not right now,” Cohen responded.

The tense exchange came after Roy asked Robinson: “If you could help me understand, was the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments to the United States Constitution passed and moved by Republicans or Democrats?”

“That would be Republicans,” Robinson responded.

“Was the move for the 64th Civil Rights Act and 65th Voting Rights Act led heavily by Republicans or Democrats?” Roy asked in another question.

“That would be Republicans,” Robinson responded.

“And so, as we sit here today, and as we’re being accused by many of our colleagues on the other side of the aisle of wanting to somehow perpetuate the Jim Crow South. When, in fact, what we’re trying to do is perpetuate laws that you can believe in,” Roy said.
