Apparently a US Senator from Kentucky is not allowed to have a wife of a different race than he is. At least he’s not allowed according to Kathy Groob, Democratic operative in the Bluegrass state.
As partisans prepared for the much anticipated Fancy Farm speeches Saturday afternoon, the Kentucky Democratic Party has delivered a sharp rebuke to a series of comments on Twitter from a Democratic operative who referenced the ethnicity of Elaine Chao, the wife of Republican U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell.
“Google Elaine Chao, #MitchMcConnell’s wife,” Groob tweeted Saturday morning. “No mention of Kentucky, she is Asian.”
Screen captures of the tweets in question are available at the link above.
Of course, doing damage control, the Kentucky Democratic Party said they denounced them, but they’re the ones that hired her to write articles for the Kentucky House Democrat Caucus, unless they wanna claim she’s a plant from the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy.
One wonders if she’ll still have her job for the KY Democrats this time next month. I bet she will, far be it from a Democrat to be fired for a racist comment that if made by a Republican would have the leftists looking for trees to hang said Republican from.
