Journalist catches Sen. Katie Britt in an ‘out and out lie’ in her State of Union response

admin

A reporter accused Sen. Katie Britt (R-AL) of making false statements when she discussed the horrors of a girl sex-trafficked by Mexican cartel members.

Jonathan M. Katz posted a video on TikTok walking through his dot-connecting that he claims catches the freshman senator making up some details of a vignette as part of the Republican response from a kitchen.

“When I first took office, I did something different,” she said. “I traveled to the Del Rio sector of Texas, where I spoke to a woman who shared her story with me.

“She had been sex trafficked by the cartels starting at age 12. She told me not just that she was raped every day, but how many times a day she was raped.”

Britt continued: “The cartels put her on a mattress in a shoebox of a room, and they sent men through that door, over and over again, for hours and hours on-end.”

At this point, Katz suggests Britt is intimating that the rapes were committed in the U.S. when she states the following: “We wouldn’t be OK with this happening in a third-world country. This is the United States of America, and it’s past time we start acting like it. President Biden’s border crisis is a disgrace. It’s despicable. And it’s almost entirely preventable.”

Taking Points Memo’s Josh Marshall praised Katz for catching Britt “in an out and out lie.”

Katz’s digging turned up some proof the victim didn’t experience the attacks on American soil, but he also found that the timeline proved Biden wasn’t even in office.

There was a trip that Britt took along with Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) along with Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS) to the the Del Rio Sector back in last January — all documented on Blackburn’s website.

He then cross-referenced the details and found the name: Karla Jacinto Romero, who is described as being pimped by a 22-year-old man at the age of 12, and “enslaved until the age of 16 in brothels, roadside motels and homes in Guadalajara and other cities in Mexico.”

These events didn’t happen in the United States,” said Katz. “These crimes didn’t take place in the United States. Or even near the border. They took place in Mexico.”

And they also took place, according to Romero’s recounting before Congress, between 2004 and 2008.

Biden didn’t become Vice President until 2009. The president at the time when Romero was kidnapped and ultimately rescued was George W. Bush.
