Loudoun Dems Condemn County Treasurer’s “Racially Discriminatory Comments on Facebook”

1

See below for a statement from the Loudoun County Democratic Committee, regarding this story:

Loudoun County Treasurer Roger Zurn (R) on Wednesday posted and quickly deleted a racially insensitive social media post following word that the Aunt Jemima brand will be discontinued.

Zurn, who is white and has served as county treasurer since 1996, posted on his personal Facebook page Wednesday morning: “Wondering if Aunt Jemima will change to Uncle Tom’s?”

The post, a screengrab of which was sent to the Times-Mirror, was deleted minutes after it went live.
