Tea Party Leader Resigns After Racist Joke
Marler said she, too, regretted repeating the “joke” that she said she found on the Internet. She said a welfare abuse issue is larger in scope than the “joke” encompasses. The issue should include everyone who “bleeds red” and abuses welfare benefits, she said.
The “joke” was greeted with applause and laughter. There were no objections to the “joke” from the floor and no one spoke with disapproval or objection to Marler’s comment except those pursued for comment by The Baxter Bulletin.
