Montgomery County, Ill., GOP Chairman Jim Allen recently called GOP congressional candidate Erika Harold a “love child” of the Democratic Party and a “street-walker” whose “pimps” are party leaders.
Allen also said Harold will end up “working for some law firm that needs to meet their quota for minority hires.”
Harold is a former Miss America and Harvard law school graduate.
According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the inflammatory attack was in an email sent to fellow Republicans.
One of those Republicans, Doug Ibendahl, posted the entire email on RepublicanNewsWatch.com so that Republicans could “understand why the Illinois Republican Party keeps losing elections — look no further than the racist rant from a GOP party official.”
Harold is running for the GOP nomination against incumbent U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis.
“Rodney Davis will win and the love child of the D.N.C. will be back in S---cago by May of 2014 working for some law firm that needs to meet their quota for minority hires,” Allen wrote. “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.”
