Keepin’ it classy.
A pro-Democratic group has drawn sharp criticisms after it attacked Sen. Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) Asian wife, former Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao. The super PAC Progress Kentucky has demonstrated in front of McConnell’s home and offices, but raised the most ire from critics after tweeting that Chao “has the ear of [Sen. McConnell]” which could “explain why your job moved to China!”
Kentucky’s WFPL recaps the incident.
I’m sure all Asians look alike to the left but she is of Taiwanese decent, who are not exactly big fans of China.
Update: Note to “Progress Kentucky,” when even the far-left loons on ThinkProgress are slamming you, it’s time for an apology.
[P]rogress Kentucky just released a second statement standing by its tweet and denying that it was racist in nature: “Senator Mitch McConnell has a conflict of interest that many are afraid to talk about, and Progress Kentucky is not,” the group said
