Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Ga., attacked Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas for voting to invalidate a section of the Voting Rights Act, saying that he damaged the country more than Edward Snowden, the defense contractor on the run after committing the biggest national security leak in American history.

“Comparing it to Snowden, I’d say the offense is worse,” Johnson told The Huffington Post. “He consciously repeats those same steps over and over again to the detriment of the African-American community.”
