MN-02: GOP Staffer Caught On Camera Yelling About "Jap" Cars

Oh, dear -- another GOPer has been caught on video spewing racial slurs. Who's the latest? The political director for GOP Rep. John Kline has been filmed bellowing about "Jap" cars. The Minneapolis Star Tribune has just reported that the political director, former state Rep. Mike Osskopp, was filmed by Dem activists outside an event on Sunday with Dem John Murtha, who was in the state to campaign for Coleen Rowley, the Dem challenger to Kline. The tape -- which subsequently popped up on the Inside Minnesota Politics blog -- showed Osskopp giving people a hard time for arriving in foreign-made cars. "Another Jap car," Osskopp screamed. Osskopp -- whose sister in law, as it happens, is Japanese-American -- later apologized.
