On Tuesday, Alicia Powe of NewsBusters' sister site MRCTV.org asked Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) about her having described Republican efforts in various states for voter ID laws as "Jim Crow"-like measures.

A very charitable explanation is that it's possible Rep. Wasserman Schultz just has a spotty memory. At any rate, you can watch the video in the embed below and judge for yourself:
