The Republican Party of Texas will donate to charity the $1,500 it received for leasing a booth at its state convention to a vendor who sold this racist button, according to reports.
According to the Dallas Morning News, the booth selling the racist pin was leased by Jonathan Alcox of Florida.
Texas Republicans spokeswhore Hans Klingler said the Repubs have been unsuccessful in trying to reach the vendor, Republicanmarket.com, who sold pins, scarves and other items last weekend.
So, instead, the party is sending a letter saying in “very strong terms” that he need not apply to sell items at any further state GOP events.
That's the way to take a stand against racism…donate a laughable $1500 and send a 'strongly worded' letter.
The Republican Party is still determining which charity will receive its donation.
The Texan Republican mouthpiece Klinger went on to say that he and party leaders believe the pin is distasteful and they hated that it was being sold at their event, which he said was upbeat and dedicated to unity.
Actions speak louder than words!
