Did You Know - Henrietta Holsman Fore

The Republicans seem to attract such darling people to their leadership ranks. Why do you suppose that is? What is there about the party, or its members, that seems to attract an inordinate number of people of hate?

From the Washington Post...

Henrietta Holsman Fore, who was nominated to replace the deputy secretary of state for foreign assistance after he resigned in late April over an escort scandal, made racially charged remarks about the work ethics of blacks, Hispanics, Asians and whites two decades ago, prompting two key Democratic senators yesterday to demand answers on her diversity record at the State Department.

Fore, the undersecretary for management since 2005, was tapped by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to replace Randall Tobias in the high-profile post after he suddenly quit after admitting that he received massages through an escort service allegedly involved in prostitution. But Fore's racial remarks at Wellesley College -- which resulted in her resignation as a Wellesley trustee -- have emerged as a possible roadblock.
