Remember this guy?
A local newspaper columnist, in a spoof of Obama’s platform, wrote in one recent piece that the Democrat would hire the rapper Ludacris to paint the White House black (a reference to a pro-Obama song by Ludacris), and divert more foreign aid to Africa so “the Obama family there can skim enough to allow them to free their goats and live the American Dream.” He joked that Obama would replace the 50 stars on the U.S. flag “with a star and crescent logo,” an Islamic symbol, and that his policy on drugs would be to “raise taxes to pay for Obama’s inner-city political base.”
The columnist, Bobby May, is also treasurer of the Buchanan County Republican Party and was listed in a July news release as the county’s representative on McCain’s Virginia leadership team, though he said his column reflected his views alone, and he denied it was racist.
The complete letter from Bobby May is available here, containing anti-gay, anti-Muslim, racist, and lots more racist comments. What ended up happening to Bobby May is that he was denounced and dropped like a hot potato by the McCain campaign in Virginia, which said, “The moment the campaign learned of Mr. May’s comments, we immediately removed him from his campaign position…Race should never ever, ever play a role in American politics.”
So, what’s Bobby May been up to since then? According to VPAP, May provided $57,339 in advertising services to the Bill Bolling for LG campaign in 2009; $2,547 to the Bob McDonnell for Governor campaign; and thousands of dollars more to other Republican candidates like (then Delegate, now Congressman) Morgan Griffith. Currently, May is providing his services to the Greg Habeeb For House of Delegates campaign to fill Morgan Griffith’s vacated seat. In case you’re interested, the Democrat running against Habeeb is Ginger Mumpower. The election is on January 11 – just 1 week away!
