N. Carolina Republican Chairman spills beans: GOP suppressing Democratic votes and are racists. Oh, and had to quit.

So, Republicans are really concerned about voter fraud, and not trying to suppress Democratic votes?

And the Republican Party really isn't filled with incidental racists?

Guess again, here's Rachel Maddow with a sweet look at the real Republican Tea Party:

TPM: A Republican precinct chairman in North Carolina was asked to resign Thursday after making racially inflammatory comments during a 'Daily Show' interview on Wednesday, WRAL reported.

Buncombe GOP Chair Henry Mitchell said Don Yelton resigned for making remarks that were "offensive, uniformed and unacceptable of any member within the Republican Party."
 In an interview centered on North Carolina's voter ID law conducted by the Daily Show's Aasif Mandvi, Yelton criticized "lazy black people that wants the government to give them everything.""The bottom line is the law is not racist," Yelton said.

"Of course the law isn't racist, and you're not racist," Mandvi responded.

Speaking of fake news. Does GE Capital pay you to post this propaganda?

Yea, he's not representative of the Republican Party, they all aren't.

A hidden point in the segment- why are correspondents from the Daily Show getting more candid answers and exposing these idiots more than our "legitimate" media is?

Couldn't be because comedians have to be honest while "journalists" have to remain "objective," does it? Memo to the MSM, stop with the "both sides" stenography and TELL THE TRUTH
