It’s always Virginia (when it is not South Carolina, that is):
Republican House candidate Scott Rigell of Virginia has called for local party chair David Bartholomew to step down immediately after allegedly sending a racist joke over e-mail. Dated March 15, the e-mail that looks to be from Bartholomew’s account comes with the subject line of “my dog.” It’s not funny:
I went down this morning to sign up my Dog for welfare.
At first the lady said, “Dogs are not eligible to draw welfare”.
So I explained to her that my Dog is black, unemployed, lazy, can’t speak
English and has no frigging clue who his Daddy is.
So she looked in her policy book to see what it takes to qualify…
My Dog gets his first check Friday.
Is this is a great country or what?
