Here’s what we know…
According to The Blaze, Lamar County Democratic Party chair Gary O’Connor announced that he is resigning from his post after receiving backlash for using a racial slur to describe South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott.
“I had hoped that Scott might show some common sense, but it seems clear he is little more than an oreo with no real principles,” he said in a now-deleted Facebook post.
“I am deeply and sincerely sorry for my inappropriate and hurtful use of [the] racist term I used to describe Sen. Tim Scott on my personal Facebook page,” O’Connor said before his resignation. “As a result, I feel compelled to offer my resignation as chair of the Lamar County Democratic Party for consideration by the County Executive Committee.”
