While Republicans all over the country are vying to lead the beleaguered GOP back to greatness, one candidate for RNC chair brings with him a special qualification:
Katon Dawson, the South Carolina GOP chairman, announced his candidacy for RNC chair yesterday.
And guess what: Back in September, when Dawson was first quietly laying the groundwork for his RNC run, The State newspaper reported that he resigned his membership in the nearly 80-year-old Forest Lake Club. Members told the newspaper at the time that the club's deed has a whites-only restriction and has no black members.
I know what you're thinking. And yes, at first glance, Dawson does seem like the ideal person to front the modern Republican Party. But let's not be hasty here. We don't even know yet if he's a closeted homosexual who rabidly opposes gay rights.
