Republicans land themselves a former Miss America, Harvard Law-educated Black female candidate, and what does one of their own do? Dismiss her as the “love child” of the Democratic party and a “street walker” whose “pimps” are party leaders. Worse, Montgomery County GOP Chairman Jim Allen said that after the election, Erika Harold (pictured) will find herself “working for some law firm that needs to meet their quota for minority hires.”
Well, not if Abigail Fisher has her way. In any event, again, this a Republican bashing another Republican. While Harold is seeking the GOP nomination for the 13th Congressional District of Illinois, Allen made the comments in response to a gushing column about Harold and the potential of her candidacy.
Doug Ibendahl wrote:
If Erika Harold prevails, she would become the first female African-American Republican congressman in American history. There have been Black male Republican congressmen, but never a Black woman on the GOP side from any state. (Harold’s diverse background also includes Native-American ancestry.) It would be wrong to focus only on race and gender. Harold is a Rock Star candidate who just happens to be a Black woman. Still, given the huge problem the GOP is having everywhere with minority outreach, Harold’s ability to lead on brand repair cannot be ignored.
Even though Ibendahl is spot on, Allen got riled up something terrible:
Rodney Davis will win and the love child of the D.N.C. will be back in S—cago [Expletive deleted] by May of 2014 working for some law firm that needs to meet their quota for minority hires,” Allen wrote in the e-mail. . . . Miss queen is being used like a street walker and her pimps are the DEMOCRAT PARTY and RINO REPUBLICANS.
Dumb *ss thy name is Jim Allen. The Republican Party will not survive in the coming decades if it continues to reject symbols of inclusiveness.
