  •  How did she even get elected in the first place? (1+ / 0-)

    This is not a one time, oopsies!, moment. This woman has been this way her whole life.

    I know too many people like this. She has uttered and muttered this - and other terms - too many times, in public and private moments, for people not to know the truth about her. How could someone like this get elected in a predominately AA township?

    Peace on Earth was all it said.

    •  Considering her age I'd say long-term incumbent (1+ / 0-)

      It looks like the city only has around 9,000 people.  Offices like Township Clerk are often filled by one person for a very long time.  Given she's 69 years old I'll bet she's one of those people who has been in the same office for a couple decades.  She probably got elected many years ago and maintained her office in a minority heavy town because she's a Democrat, has name recognition and never said anything overtly racist/offensive until now.  

      That would be my guess because looking at the town's website nearly all the other offices are occupied by African-Americans.
