Former Miss America Runs for Office in Illinois, Called a "Street Walker"

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics...al-gop-leader/

A former Miss America winner who is now a GOP candidate for Congress was called a string of profane names today, including “street walker,” ”love child” and “Miss Queen. ” Her attacker? A local Republican Party chairman in central Illinois.

Erika Harold, the 2003 winner of the Miss America contest, announced two weeks ago that she was running from Illinois’ 13th District. Her decision to challenge Rep. Rodney Davis in the Republican primary has divided some local party members and prompted the name-calling. A full account of the episode first appeared in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Harold, a 33-year-old graduate of Harvard Law School, is black. The criticism against her – from Jim Allen, chairman of the Montgomery County Republican Party – carried strong racist overtones.

He launched his criticism in a letter today to Republican News Watch, a local conservative news site. He derided her Miss America platform of advocating for abstinence and against school bullying.

“The little queen touts her abstinence, and she won the crown because she got bullied in school — boohoo, kids are cruel, life sucks and you move on,” Allen wrote. “Now, Miss Queen is being used like a street walker, and her pimps are the DEMOCRAT PARTY and RINO REPUBLICANS.”

He went on to call her “the love child of the DNC.”

The editor of Republican News Watch, Doug Ibendahl, said the comments were “outrageous” and underscored “why we as Republicans fail to gain any respect from minority voters.

“If officials in my party fail to understand how destructive it is to attack an impressive person like Erika Harold merely because she dares to challenge the good old boys, the GOP will remain a losing party for decades,” Ibendahl wrote. “This stay-in-the-back-of-the-bus mentality destroys any hope the Republican Party has for regaining momentum in future elections.”

Allen did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Davis, 43, was elected to Congress last fall by a slim margin. His district runs across central Illinois, from Champaign to the Illinois suburbs of St. Louis.

Not in this story they don't. Maybe there's more to it, but only a racist that likes to pretend victimhood would hear anything racist in what's reported above. I'd buy that it's misogynistic.

Rodney Davis will win and the love child of the D.N.C. will be back in Shitcago by May of 2014 working for some law firm that needs to meet their quota for minority hires.

The truth is Nancy Pelosi and the DEMOCRAT party want this seat. So they called RINO Timmy Johnson to be their pack mule and get little queen to run.

Ann Callis gets a free ride through a primary and Rodney Davis has a battle.

The little queen touts her abstinence and she won the crown because she got bullied in school,,,boohoo..kids are cruel, life sucks and you move on..Now, miss queen is being used like a street walker and her pimps are the DEMOCRAT PARTY and RINO REPUBLICANS…These pimps want something they can’t get,,, the seat held by a conservative REPUBLICAN Rodney Davis and Nancy Pelosi can’t stand it..

Little Queenie and Nancy Pelosi have so much in common but the one thing that stands out the most.. both are FORMER QUEENS, their crowns are tarnished and time has run out on the both of them..

So him saying she will be filling a company's minority quota isn't racist? Really?

What would be the reason for mentioning race?

He seems to think that she isn't terribly gifted and that her best chance to succeed might be tied to any opportunity she might find to get hired not because of her own qualifications, but because she has the right heritage for the position.

Well, I haven't seen the woman. If she's a member of a minority group and if she herself defines part of her own identity from being a member of it, then no. Simply mentioning her race isn't racist at all. Why would it be?

I guess the guy apologized. It was probably the right move regardless of who she is.

Yeah, no.

For what it's worth, now that I've seen it, her website doesn't seem to make a big deal about her heritage.

It is racist if he believes she is unqualified BECAUSE of her race. If he simply believes she is unqualified but is getting by solely because of her minority status than he may be wrong but he isn't necessarily racist. He is basically calling out those who support her as racist.

I know nothing of either person but it does sound like he is a dumbass and should know HIS place. Of course I could be wrong and she could be a spectacular idiot and his comments could be justified... still dumb to put out there though.

Pretty much. What we do know is that his opinion was formed in a mind of a dumbass, so there's that to go on with respect to validity.
