And yet another local elected official has been caught sending racist emails and then doing the “what, me racist?” thing. This time it’s a school board member in Virginia who has his fellow board members calling on him to resign after forwarding these emails:
This all goes back to the Isle of Wight school board member Herb Degroft and an e-mail he sent containing naked women and a reference to First Lady Michelle Obama.
He forwarded two emails from his county email account. One had a picture with bare-breasted, African female warriors with the caption “Michelle Obama’s high school reunion.” Another e-mail claimed Mrs. Obama was paid $50 to model in National Geographic.
But he’s not resigning and, of course, he’s not racist.
In retrospect, Degroft admits he made a mistake. He says the e-mails were meant to be political, not racist.
I bet he has a lot of black friends. I bet he even lets them use his bathroom.
