If you don’t which of the parties is compassionate and tolerant and which is xenophobic and racist, this anecdote should clarify it for you once and for all.
Among the tens of thousands of DNC emails leaked last week by Wikileaks, one that has gained little attention is one in an email chain between Scott Comer, the finance chief of staff and LGBT finance director for the Democratic National Committee, and Zachary Allen, of the consulting firm TIPAH.
The exchange involved a third party, one Rob Smith of Haddad Brands, who wrote to Comer and Allen:
Gentlemen, I’m encouraging a phone call next week.
There has been some shift in leadership and I’d like for us to be aligned on next steps. After seeing a few emails, I’m not sure that we are all on the same page.
I’m going to have LaQueenia send out some options for next week. Hopefully we can all get on the phone and reenergize this event.
Allen apparently got a huge kick out of the name LaQueenia — which is the first name of LaQueenia Gibson, an executive assistant for Haddad. He wrote to Comer, “LaQueenia is a NAME!”
This is LaQueenia Gibson:
Imagine if an operative with the Republican National Committee poked fun in an email at a “black name” Do you think the story would be relegated to the back pages?
