Republican Official Just Attacked Native American Candidate In a Racist Rant, and People Are Not Having It

Not OK.

People did not think being a “radical socialist kick boxing lesbian” Native was a bad thing.

Some mentioned Davids’ participation in amateur mixed martial arts or MMA.

Many encouraged people to donate to Davids’ campaign and to vote to make a statement against racism, sexism and homophobia.

And Anne Pritchett—the woman the message was sent to—made her own statement on Twitter.

The Kansas City Star reached out to Kalny by phone for a comment. He identified himself as a GOP precinct committeeman—an elected position that represents political parties on a precinct’s behalf.

When asked about the message, Kalny first asked “what is this lady trying to accomplish?” Then stated he needed to talk to his attorney and hung up.

On Wednesday the Kansas GOP announced Kalny had resigned.
