David Storck, you're the next contestant on who can make the Republicans look more racist today, and it looks like you might be the big winner.
The head of the Hillsborough GOP, David Storck, distributed an email from a Republican Party volunteer saying the voters are a threat.But the best part is his not-quite-an-apology and explanation for the email.
That's because, as the volunteer says in the email, he sees "car loads of black Obama supporters coming from the inner city to cast their votes for Obama."
It goes on to say, "This is their chance to get a black president and they seem to care little the he is at minimum a socialist and probably Marxist in his core beliefs." The Republican volunteer says that is because, "After all he is black- no experience or accomplishments but he is black."
Storck says he didn't pay enough attention to the email before he sent it out. "Now I know that was a mistake. I never should have done it. I do not agree with the statement or anything else. That's not what we're all about."What part of that email could be put down to not paying enough attention before he sent it out? Would it be the suggestion that it's racist for black voters to support a black candidate? Or the suggestion that black voters are a threat because they're from the inner city?
You would think that by this point, people would have learned that you shouldn't put anything in an email that you're afraid would become public, nor should you pass along an email without reading it carefully, because if you're in the public spotlight, there's a good chance someone will use it to embarrass you. And you just might deserve it.
