Guess who the Virigina GOP has tapped to appear at a rally for minority outreach this weekend.
George Allen. Yes, that George Allen.
We checked in with the state GOP to ask if Allen is really an effective front-man for the party’s efforts to win over minorities, given the “macaca” scandal.
The answer? Yes! “George Allen has an excellent record on issues of diversity, reaching out to people,” Gerry Scimeca, communications director for the state party, told us. “His whole career, his whole life have been a testament to a guy who’s treated people equally across racial lines, across every kind of line.”
They tried to get David Duke, but he had another engagement and couldn’t cross it off his schedule.
