Gop official Jim Allen resigns after racist rant against Erika Harold

20 June 2013 6:22 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Jim Allen, chairman of the Republican Party in Montgomery County, Illinois, has resigned after controversy erupted over an email he sent blasting Republican Congressional candidate Erika Harold.

The Associated Press reports that Illinois Republican Party chairman Jack Dorgan accepted Allen's resignation on Thursday (June 20) afternoon.

Allen -- a supporter of Harold's primary opponent, U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis -- sent an email published on that railed against Harold as a "love child of the D.N.C." who will lose the election and work "for some law firm that needs to meet their quota for minority hires."

Harold graduated Harvard law school and was crowned Miss America in 2003.

Davis had called on Allen to step down and Allen's name has been removed from the Davis campaign's list of supporters. »
