Illinois GOP county official Jim Allen has resigned after calling former Miss America and GOP congressional candidate Erika Howard, a “streetwalker” and a “love child” who would likely wind up with an affirmative action job.
Harvard law grad Erika Harold is challenging Rep. Rodney Davis in the GOP primary for the 13th congressional district.
“Today, I accepted the resignation of Jim Allen as Montgomery County chairman. These types of offensive and inappropriate remarks have no place in our Republican Party,” said Jack Dorgan, chairman of the Illinois Republican Party, in a statement posted on the state GOP’s Facebook page.
