|U.S. Representative from Georgia's 6th Congressional District|
From: January 3, 2019 – present
|Successor||Incumbent (no successor)|
Lucia Kay "Lucy" McBath is left-wing Democrat currently serving as a U.S. representative from Georgia's 6th district, having very narrowly defeated then-incumbent Republican representative Karen Handel in the 2018 midterm elections.
McBath's son Jordan Davis was shot and killed in November 2012 while at a gas station with his friends, where they openly played music at a high volume, angering a nearby man named Michael Dunn who soon shot Davis out of racist prejudices in thinking that the former had a gun. McBath, a black woman who decries racism and has since the tragic incident become a supporter of gun control, later endorsed Michael Bloomberg in the 2020 U.S. presidential election despite the fact that Bloomberg promotes the very racism (see here) that fueled her son's death, as noted.

A non-partisan watchdog group filed a complaint against McBath after the latter had violated congressional ethics rules in engaging in coordination with a gun-grabbing group.
