Another case of a person in a responsible position who is caught sending a stupid e-mail.
Former Miss America Erika Harold … who is black and a Harvard-trained lawyer … is challenging Representative Rodney Davis in the Republican primary in Montgomery County, Illinois. That county’s G-O-P chairman – Jim Allen – sent an email to Republican News Watch … saying “Miss Queen is being used like a street walker and her pimps are the DEMOCRATIC PARTY and RINO REPUBLICANS”.
Allen also called Harold the “love child” of the Democratic National Committee and criticized her platform as Miss America, which promoted abstinence and put the spotlight on bullying in schools.
Well, the St. Louis Post Dispatch caught the email and printed it in the newspaper. OOPS!
Allen has apologized for his “very inappropriate and wrong” comments.
Nothing partisan about this; I can imagine a Democrat doing the same thing. The point is, Jim Allen’s ignorance about the impact of social media. He’s not alone … but that’s no defense.
Our thought for today is from Bob Edwards:
“A little learning is a dangerous thing but a lot of ignorance is just as bad.”
