No Proof Required for Claims, But Darrell Issa Voted To Keep Funding Pigford II Anyway

Rep. Issa; I’ve shot about 30 hours of video so far for the documentary Pigford Blues. And since you’ve voted to keep funding Pigford and there’s still no investigation, you have questions to answer–perhaps as much as President Obama does right now.

In this segment, Thomas Burrell, the head of the Black Farmers Agricultural Association, explains the low bar for proof in the Pigford settlement — using the excuse that no records were kept, simply saying you attempted to farm means the claimants and their lawyers win. Guess who loses, Rep. Issa?
