A Maryland lawmaker and member of the increasingly racist Democratic Party landed in hot water after using a racial slur to describe a part of a county in which a colleague had canvassed.
“Caucus members confronted Del. Mary Ann Lisanti (D) on Monday night over allegations that she told a white colleague, during an after-hours gathering at an Annapolis cigar bar, that when he campaigned in Prince George’s on behalf of a candidate last fall he was door-knocking in a ‘n—– district,’” according to The Washington Post.
The Jeff Bezos-owned blog said that Lisanti apologized for her comments, but also said that she did not recall ever saying what she was accused of saying. The half-apology is reminiscent of recently-outed racist Governor of Virginia Ralph Northam’s apology for appearing in blackface or a KKK hood in a medical school yearbook, and subsequent retraction of that apology during which he claimed that he was not in the photograph. Northam went on to admit that he had worn blackface at a Michael Jackson themed party on a separate occasion.
