Illinois GOP leader sends racist email aimed at former Miss America
FOX NEWS 32 ^ | June 23, 2013 | Larry Yellen

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Erika Harold is a Harvard educated lawyer, a former Miss America, and a conservative Republican who's now running for Congress.

Her beauty queen credentials have gotten her lots of attention, but an email that surfaced today could get her a lot more.

Harold is running against incumbent Rodney Davis in a primary next March. Since she is bi-racial, GOP activist Doug Ibendahl wrote that she'd be good for the party.

"Just be a great face for the Republican party," Ibendahl wrote. "We could actually do, in Illinois, we could do more than talk about diversity. We could actually promote it."

But last night, Ibendahl received an email from Jim Allen, the chairman of the Montgomery County Republican party, south of Springfield. Allen is backing Rodney Davis and he wrote that Harold is being "used like a street walker," that she's "the love child" of the Democrats, and that someday she'll be "working for some law firm that needs to meet their quota for minority hires." Ibendahl says Allen ought to resign his party chairmanship.

So Much for a BIG TENT to include all kinds of folks. The Illinois Republican party has had many African Americans and Hispanics step up and run for office and they have not given one inch or support or sent a nickel their way.

The only candidates the ILLINOIS GOP will support is if you are Pro gay marriage, Pro Amnesty and anything that will defeat Conservative values. What a bunch of LOSERS! I am sure the Illinois GOP is just one example of many GOP organizations that are striving to stop Conservatives, It is NOT only the IRS!

This guy was already forced out over this. I have to disagree with how they are describing. His email might be insulting, and sexist, but I didn’t see a race part.

If Allen said that, shun him.

As a parent of two biracial kids and our family being about the end of the right spectrum in conservativeness, it pisses me off...

Of course, 0bomber being biracial, wimpy, dividing America instead of uniting and being too wimpy to call himself biracial, he/it pisses me off worse. Nothing compares to president demon seed.

the chairman of the Montgomery County Republican party,

I'd say this guy is your basic RINO who doesn't like conservatives. She's conservative, and that's why he's trying to plant these doubts.

RINOs have done the same thing for every non-WASP candidate, whether black, Asian or Hispanic. The latter groups in the GOP, particularly the blacks and Hispanics, tend to be conservative, and RINOs don't like that.

Why am I brain dead? I agree with your overall point about the Illinois GOP, but one has to be accurate right? The guy should have lost his job, and never should have been there in the first place. But anything I read was not racist, it was insulting, juvenile, unwise, and sexist. Am I wrong?

AMEN!

As I said before, many of us have tried to run, ( Blacks and Hispanics) and the Illinois GOP does everything in their power to defeat the minorities that try to run in Illinois.

The connotation of Love Child and Street walker.........Seems like you are the only one who has had trouble surmising what that could mean.

the e-mail goes on...

“Now, Miss Queen is being used like a street walker and her pimps are the DEMOCRAT PARTY and RINO REPUBLICANS,” Allen wrote in an e-mail to Republican News Watch.

The Post-Dispatch describes it as an independent website run by conservative Republicans who are challenging moderate GOP leaders in Illinois.

He also predicted that Davis would win and that Harold would be “working for some law firm that needs to meet their quota for minority hires.”

Correct:

The Illinois Combine. The Illinois GOP is just an extension of the Chicago Machine.

And there’s not the slightest possibility that his meaning could be that she is a (minority) female?

This might be good, in the ultimate sense, for the Illinois GOP. The leadership could be fired by the rank and file and replaced with conservatives.

I tend to agree. I saw this "racist rant" and it looked very similar to - actually, more moderate than - the kind of things that libs typically say about black conservatives or conservative females - without censure from the msm.

Not a chance. Illinois political culture is extraordinarily race conscious. I’m guessing 9 out of 10 illinoisans, at minimum, when they hear “minority,” register that as probably racial. If they know the person is black, its not probably, but definitely racial.

And another thing. Something weird about this. She was pushed out by the combine, establishment types hand picked Davis over her, yet Allen is packaging this as if Davis is the true conservative. I think this is purely to sell Davis to the predominantly conservative central IL base. But if he’s the combine candidate, he is a lock to betray conservatives somewhere down the road.
