“‘Daily Show’ comments cost GOP precinct chair his post”

WRAL:

A Buncombe County Republican precinct chairman has been asked to resign after making “offensive” comments on “The Daily Show.”

Buncombe GOP Chairman Henry Mitchell said Don Yelton officially stepped down from his position Thursday.

In a segment that aired Wednesday night, Yelton blasted “lazy black people that wants the government to give them everything,” one of a slew of racially inflammatory comments he made in the interview.

Mitchell called the remarks “offensive, uniformed and unacceptable of any member within the Republican Party.”
