The Chairman of the Republican Party in Maine insists he’s not racist because he has a “great friend” who’s “a black guy” and they play basketball together every Sunday. Because, you know, that’s what “friends” do.

This all came about because Republican Charlie Webster believes there was voter fraud in the state of Maine, because “nobody in town knows anyone who’s black,” and yet, there they were, on Election Day, “dozens, dozens of black people,” somehow, “they” showed up.

“How did that happen? I don’t know. We’re going to find out,” Webster promises.

How? Well, “by sending thank you cards to voters, and seeing if they are returned to sender,” Think Progress reports. .........(more)
