Update on Racist California Women's Group President

The woman who ran the food stamp racist mailer in California has resigned.

In a letter sent Wednesday to members of the Chaffey Community Republican Women, Federated, Diane Fedele said she was sorry for showing "poor judgment and lack of insight and sensitivity. AP

The netroots definitely helped bring pressure to bear in this incident. We need to make this kind of thing unacceptable every time it happens. I suspect there will be a good deal more of this for the first 6-12 mons. of an Obama administration (if we win) so we need to push back hard and make an example of this type of behavior.

I am gratified that she was forced to step down and apologize.
