Election Judge Resigns After Being Caught on Video Screaming at a Black Voter
Lila Guzman, an election supervisor and judge who is white, has resigned from her job after a video that has gone viral shows her yelling at a Black woman who reportedly needed help to find where she should vote. But Guzman claims she lost her temper because of lack of sleep and support.
“Get out! Get out! Get out! You are rude. You are not following the law. Go,” Guzman screamed at the woman, who has not been identified, while pointing at the exit.
Another voter took a video of the incident. She said she began to record when she realized things were “getting out of hand.” She recounted the incident – “She did tell her she couldn’t vote there, but she didn’t say where in Travis. The lady did have an accent. She could’ve been new to the country. I don’t know, but she needed some help.”
Moreover, Guzman can also be heard in the video threatening to call the police on the Black woman, who left before the police came.
