Dem Governor Candidate Caught Urging Hire of ‘Least Offensive’ African-American

Democrats and hypocrisy are synonymous. You can’t have one without the other.

Liberals claim to “champion” women’s rights and those of minorities, yet they’re often caught denigrating the fairer sex as well as people of color.

For example, check out this billionaire Democrat Illinois gubernatorial candidate…

From Daily Wire:

The frontrunner in the race to be the Democratic candidate for governor of Illinois has been discovered to have made racially insensitive comments.

Billionaire businessman J.B. Pritzker, whose sister Penny served as Barack Obama’s Secretary of Commerce, was caught on an FBI wiretap between him and former Gov. Rod Blagojevich urging Blagojevich to appoint Secretary of State Jesse White to the Senate seat, calling him the “least offensive” African-American.

Blagojevich was convicted for attempting to barter an appointment to Barack Obama’s vacated Senate seat in return for campaign cash. Pritzker reacted to the revelations by protesting he had not done anything wrong and moaned that the tapes had been leaked to damage his campaign. He threatened that he would consider legal action.

Fox News has more:

Pritzker has said he did nothing wrong and noted he never was accused of wrongdoing. He said Tuesday he believed people were leaking the tapes to damage his campaign and he would “contemplate” possible legal action.

The Chicago Tribune published the previously unreleased recording from a decade-old investigation of Blagojevich late Monday.

The Tribune has not disclosed how the newspaper obtained the recordings, which were not among the wiretap audio played in court that formed the core of the evidence against Blagojevich.

Pritzker’s opponents condemned the remarks, with businessman Chris Kennedy calling them “disqualifying.”

Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner, who’s seeking a second term, already has been running ads attacking Pritzker that feature wiretap audio the Chicago Tribune released last year. In those ads Pritzker and Blagojevich were heard discussing the Senate appointment and a possible state job appointment.


Where’s the mainstream media? Where’s Black Lives Matter?
