Republican Who Called Obama An Ape Wins Kentucky House Seat
A shady GOP House candidate who was denounced by his own party for racist online comments defeated an incumbent Democrat in a state House race according to Kentucky Herald Leader reports.
Dan Johnson beat Democrat Linda Belcher by only a few hundred votes. According to reports the racist republican had 9,342 votes while Belcher came in close with 9,182. Each vote matters!
The Republican Party Kentucky sent Johnson a public letter asking him to withdraw from the race after Johnson came under criticism for posting images depicting President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama as apes. He also posted several images that disparaged Muslims.
Johnson, the bishop Heart Fire Church in Louisville, said his posts were meant to be satire and that he is not racist.
