Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) spoke about his amendment to an anti-lynching bill, saying that the current bill is too broad and that laws already exist to deal with lynching. He was followed by Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) who said that the idea that the Senate isn’t taking lynching seriously was offensive. She went on to describe the incidents that led to the original anti-lynching bill, and questioned why Senator Paul felt the need to amend the bill at this time. She was followed by Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ), who also spoke about the original anti-lynching bill, and objected to Senator Paul’s amendment “on behalf of my ancestors.” Senator Paul then responded, continuing to say that the current bill needs to be amended. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) then thanked Senators Booker and Harris for their comments. close
