Jim Allen, chairman of the Montgomery County Republican Party in Illinois, may have to resign after releasing a racist, sexist rant about a republican candidate vying for Rep Rodney Davis’ congressional seat.

The challenger, Erika Harold, is a former Miss America and Harvard Law graduate.

In the tirade – sent to the editor-in-chief of a local site called Republican News Watch – Jim Allen calls Harold a “street walker,” “Little Queenie,” and a “love child of the DNC.”

From Think Progress:

An excerpt from the email:

The little queen touts her abstinence and she won the crown because she got bullied in school,,,boohoo..kids are cruel, life sucks and you move on..Now, miss queen is being used like a street walker and her pimps are the DEMOCRAT PARTY and RINO REPUBLICANS…These pimps want something they can’t get,,, the seat held by a conservative REPUBLICAN Rodney Davis and Nancy Pelosi can’t stand it..

Reaction within the state Republican Party was swift, and the Davis campaign quickly distanced themselves from the remarks. “Mr. Allen’s comments are misguided and wrong and certainly do not reflect the views of Congressman Davis or his campaign,” a spokesman for the Republican congressman told the News-Gazette. Another party chairman in nearby Champaign County also condemned the comments, telling the local newspaper that he “can’t even give you words that are printable to describe my reaction to it.”

Allen has since released an apology.
