Marsha Blackburn says one of her concerns with this TN appeals court nominee, Andre Mathis, is his "rap sheet" including 3 speeding tickets 10+ years ago.

One was for 5mph over the speed limit.

Durbin: "If speeding tickets are a rap sheet, I've got one too."


Only black people have a ‘rap sheet’ for going a few miles over the speed limit.
