Marilyn Davenport’s Racist Email Denounced By OC GOP
We have seen this before. The images were different, but the intent to denigrate was the same. The “sense of humor” was the same. And the excuses were the same. The counter-accusations were the same. The pursuit of the whistle-blower, the refusal to consider that they may have been wrong, the refusal to consider the possibility that they should resign for the good of their cause. Pride and arrogance control them.
