Race Bites Another Republican Leader
Today, a candidate for the Chairman of the National Federation of Young Republicans, Audra Shay, had a Rusty DePass moment while commenting on Facebook. Last month, Rusty DePass made media headlines after he made racial comments on Facebook concerning Mrs. Obama and apes. Apparently, people do not learn from history.
An individual responding to her comment about Wal-Mart regarding unions and employee mandated healthcare made the following comment:
“…. obama is the new terrorist … muslim is on there side … need to take this country back from all these mad coons … and illegals”
“You tell em Eric! lol”
We talked to our very own Joshua Gross, who is running for Southeast Regional Director for the National Federation what he thought about Audra’s comments:
“We have to continue to stay vigilant to make sure that racism, in any form, does not find a home in the leadership of the Republican Party”
It appears next week is going to be a lot more interesting. Not only will the South Carolina delegation have to offer comments on Mark Sanford, we will probably be asked about Audra Shay as well. Be very careful with your choice of words.
The South Carolina Federation changed their endorsement to Rachel Hoff and the Next Level team during their state convention on May 31st.
