African-American lawmakers react to Sid Miller tweet linking Nunes memo to emancipation of slaves

Several African-American state lawmakers criticized Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller Thursday for a controversial tweet Miller sent Tuesday night during President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address.

Referencing the likely release of a classified memo on the Russia investigation that Republicans say shows improper use of surveillance by the FBI, Miller wrote that “Democrats haven't been this upset over Republicans releasing something since Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves!”

Two state senators and six state representatives wrote a letter to Miller Thursday, saying his tweet “indicates poor judgment and a temperament not befitting of a public servant. It is our hope that few find your remarks humorous and that most will find them repulsive.”

The lawmakers wrote that there have been too many occurrences in which statements from Miller’s social media accounts have not befitted a public servant. In November 2016, Miller had to apologize for a tweet that called Hillary Clinton a misogynist profanity. At first he blamed the tweet on hackers, but then said it was sent “inadvertently” by a staffer.
