Earlier this week, we all wondered if former GOP vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan's comments attributing Mitt Romney loss to "unexpected urban voter turnout" was really just code for something a little more racist. As in, for exactly what this man says.
In an interview with a Maine NBC station yesterday, Maine's Republican Party State Chairman, Charlie Webster, expressed his suspicions that voter fraud had taken place during the election earlier this month, because - get ready for this - "there were dozens and dozens of black people who came in and voted."
And that's not all! From the video, which can be seen above: "In some parts of rural Maine, there were dozens, dozens of black people who came in and voted on Election Day," Webster said, figuratively wedging his foot in his mouth before continuing, "everybody has a right to vote, but nobody in town knows anyone who's black. How did that happen? I don't know. We're going to find outâ€¦"
Even though he's pretty racist, Webster swears he's not racist. In a statement made to the Portland Press Herald, he attempted to clarify his statements, saying, "I'm not politically correct and maybe I shouldn't have said these voters were black, but anyone who suggests I have a bias toward any race or group, frankly, that's sleazy."
Hey, Webster. You have bias towards other races and groups, and you're the sleazy one - Maine has been voting democrat for the past five elections. So, way to go be an asshole.
