Illinois GOP Official: Black Female Candidate Erika Harold A ‘Street Walker’; ‘Love Child’

Illinois GOP Official: Black Female Candidate Erika Harold A ‘Street Walker’; ‘Love Child’

The GOP “minority outreach” bandwagon continues its futile journey to 2014. Former Miss America Erika Harold, an Illinois Republican running in the primary against Rep. Rodney Davis in the state’s 13th congressional district, was called a “street walker” and minority-quota hire by Montgomery County GOP chairman (and Davis supporter) Jim Allen in an email to the conservative Republican News Watch. Allen also mocked her experiences as a bullied child, sneering, “Boohoo, kids are cruel, life sucks and you move on.”

Ms. Harold, an African-American and Harvard-educated attorney, was enthusiastically profiled as a possible leader on “brand repair” by Republican News Watch‘s editor-in-chief Doug Ibendahl last week, prompting Allen to go on his juvenile, misogynistic, racist email rant — which was reprinted in its entirety by an outraged Ibendahl:

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,,, 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..

“Outrageous comments like those of Jim Allen are why we as Republicans fail to gain any respect from minority voters,” said Ibendahl. ”If officials in my party (the Republican 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. This stay-in-the-back-of-the-bus mentality destroys any hope the Republican Party has for regaining momentum in future elections.”

    Allen should be praised for speaking his mind without being afraid of the PC crowd’s criticism.
    I know I sure like it, but then I’m a Democrat too.

  • JSquercia

    Open Mouth , insert FOOT .These racist women hating GOPers just can’t help themselves

  • Michael Kollmorgen

    This is another good example why Republicans should not hold public office.

  • Robert P. Robertson

    Damn, Republicunts are beginning to cannibalize the young and the weak among them! It’s ugly!

  • zollo

    Why would Ms. Harold want to stay in the Republican party??

    • Sand_Cat

      Excellent question.

    • tranz2deep

      To stand as an example and a place to rally to when the backlash finally, *finally* arrives and the racist misogynistic sad sacks are finally put against the electoral wall.

  • Dominick Vila

    What amazes me is that many American women accept, and even condone, this kind of behavior.

  • old_blu

    Note to self: Doug Ibendahl is the first Republican I’ve agreed with for a long time. I can’t believe they still have women that will vote for them, I was talking to a woman the other day that was animate about how good they were doing, I just shook my head.

  • JDavidS

    Jeezus…how many times, and in how many ways, can you shoot yourself in the foot? Seems the RepubliCONS find a new way every week…

    Republicans do not turn off just minority voters. They turn off people like me. This kind of thinking has no place in public elected office. If one segment of society, one individual, is abased, demeaned, and otherwise slandered and slurred, it is an indication of a “caste system”, a picking and choosing of who is worthy of being served by an elected official and who is not, and, tomorrow, it could be any one of us.

    Name calling, insults, personal attacks of this nature, usually hurled these days at women and at people of any color other than white, is all the Republican Party can do these days. We have come to expect it. It is ugly, low class, ignorant. Not even juveniles engage in that so much anymore because it is not “cool”, and they have been going to school, playing sports, etc., for a generation now, with peers of all colors and walks of life. Those who do still live in the deprived homes of adults who think that way, fast becoming minorities themselves.

    At the end of the day, that behavior reflects more upon themselves; the words boomerrang, and they are the ugly ones and the rejected ones. They should be rejected at the voting booths. They have no business in public office. We can assume that because this candidate is a woman, she is a “streetwalker, etc.” Because she is a black woman, better educated than the ones maligning her, she is a huge threat. So far, it seems to be Republicans who need to use these tactics against female political opponents of certain ilks, those with education, independence, and skin color, really, is trumped by their gender, it serves only to fuel the flames. The only females they accept are those who can be told what to do and who can provide them some bling by being even more offensive and ignorant than they are.

    How can anyone even think people like that are capable of decision making on any important issue that comes before an elected official in a city, county, state, or federal office? They have become the dregs of our society.

      You said that well and I now don’t need to restate the details. I will declare my outrage even though I have come to expect this from Republicans on the deep end of the party. The more dangerous ones have learned to be much more subtle while hiding it behind strange explanations for extremely conservative laws. Guess who holds the House hostage so nothing can get done … Ignorant extremists in the party of Lincoln. He must be walker the halls at night knowing what we are still up against.

      What Paula Deen is being castigated for doesn’t even come close to this. Ashley Judd decided not to challenge Mitch McConnell in Kentucky because she knew she would get the same crap.

  • springerj

    So Allen has resigned. What about Davis?

  • NoRINO

    Damian Legacy & Blake Bergen two gays don’t belong in Catholic George Washington University, Sandra Fluke doesn’t belong in Catholic Georgetown University. Why Erika Harold wants to be in the party of the stupid and the party that can’t win ???

  • RobertCHastings

    You go, Jim Allen. Just keep spouting your racist rant, and you might even get a job giving Rush a rush.

  • ralphkr

    If only we could only get Jim Allen to tell how he REALLY feels about Erika Harold. To tell the truth, he sounds like a kid who asked for a date and was rejected.

  • youmustbejoking

    For the life of me, I can’t understand why a woman like this one would stay in the Republican party. Surely she realizes that while he may have been the one to say it, there are many others out there who are thinking the same thing. They just haven’t either been stupid enough or haven’t been given the right opportunity to spout off in a way that becomes public. Bet if you could be a fly on the wall, you would find a bunch of them agreeing with this guy.

  • commserver

    The saying “Birds of a feather flock together” certainly applies to Allen.
