Just another ignorant example from a GOP member:
...former chairman of South Carolina's Election Commission apologized after posting on Facebook suggesting a gorilla that escaped from a Columbia zoo was an ancestor of first lady Michelle Obama.
After the gorilla’s escape, Rusty DePass posted: "I’m sure it’s just one of Michelle’s ancestors — probably harmless."
THIS is a racist statement - no question. He lamely apologized stating he was only commenting on something she herself had referenced regarding evolution. However no findings on such statement has been made by myself or the news media. Nice try.
White, republican, man speaking his truth ... continues to remind us why they are SO out of it. DePass, you can never apologize enough - this was not a mistake, a blunder, a misspeak. You're an ass, plain and simple.
