Yet another elected republican pig with a penchant for racist e-mails:

Look at this beauty queen:







from ThinkProgress:



Yet another conservative official sends racist anti-Obama e-mail.

In a story that has become so common that it is almost pass, yet another conservative official has been busted sending racist e-mails. This time, the culprit is Atwater, CA Councilman Gary Frago, who sent at least half-a-dozen racist, anti-Obama e-mails to Atwater staff and community members:

Some compared Obama to O.J. Simpson while others suggested that n***** rigs should now be called presidential solutions.

Perhaps the most overboard e-mail was sent on Jan. 15. It read: Breaking News Playboy just offered Sarah Palin $1 million to pose nude in the January issue. Michelle Obama got the same offer from National Geographic.

Frago admitted sending the e-mails, but showed no regret. If theyre from me, then I sent them, he said. I have no disrespect for the president or anybody, they werent meant in any bad way or harm.


When given an opportunity to explain himself, Frago somehow managed to dig himself a deeper hole by saying: I dont see where theres a story, Im not the only one that does it. I didnt originate them, they came to me and I just passed them on.
