During an appearance on C-SPAN, Congressman James Cylburn (D-SC),74, recommended U.S. citizens sext out the vote!
While promoting his memoir, Congressman Clyburn spoke about voting to change communities when a citizen called C-SPAN to speak about the tragedies surrounding Michael Brown and Trayon Martin deaths.
He stated during his segment:
“Use the tools that we have. We can text, what do we call it, sexting? Let’s do some voting organizing over the internet. We’ve got the tools. Let’s use them for a new massive movement that will make sure that we can have in November 2014 the kind of turnout at the polls that we had, uh, in 2012 in November.”
Death And Taxes Magazine reports Congressman Clyburn most likely does not know what it means to sext or text and links his use of lexicon to buzzwords that would attract youths. Western Journalism states this November, Congressman Clyburn will be running against Reverend Leon Witt for the Congressman position in the 6th congressional district of South Carolina. Congressman Clyburn has held the position since 1993. Below, you can watch him share his insight on voting.
