Racial e-mail sent by Hillsborough GOP leader



In the Hillsborough County GOP -- where former Chairman David Storck made headlines for forwarding racially-charged e-mails -- veteran state committeewoman Carol Carter has stirred controversy with her own e-mails from a few days ago. Judge for yourself.

I'm confused

How can 2,000,000 blacks get into Washington, DC in 1 day in sub zero temps when 200,000 couldn't get out of New Orleans in 85 degree temps with four days notice?

And a few hours later:

I have been asked to send this apology for my earlier email. I am sorry that it was received in a negative manner. I do hope that we are going to be allowed to keep our sense of humor.

As you can now see, it went to very few people. I did add Todd Marks in this apology, as he is in the mix now. I am also sorry to learn that some of these persons are not real team players. There really was no reason for this to go beyond those that I emailed (8 people). This was not an email blast as I do not have that capability.
