Despite the negative controversy surrounding the Republican Party and its 'anti-Black', 'anti-LGBT', 'anti-women', and 'anti-immigrant' messages, the party seems to be stuck on stupid and doing business as usual.
In a most recent controversy involving the party as it struggles to expand and attract women and minority voters, another GOP leader,
Jim Allen, who is a campaign staffer for U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis was forced to resign after he wrote an email in which he criticized Erika Harold, a black female Republican candidate for having the audacity of challenging a white candidate, Rep. Davis, for Congress.
On June 4, 2013 Harold announced plans to challenge fellow Republican, U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis, in the 2014 Republican primary.
According to Allen, Harold is “a street walker and a love child of Democrats and could fill a minority quota at a law firm should she lose the race.”
Erika Harold, 33-year-old, is an African-American experienced attorney and a former Miss America who is running as a Republican candidate for the 13th Congressional District seat in the State of Illinois. She is a graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Harvard Law School.
