OC Mayor Will Resign for Being a Schmuck

022609_watermelon.jpg
Orange County, what we describe at cocktail parties as Alabama with money. Has blinded the nation with its classiness once again. Los Alamitos Mayor Dean Grose sent out this picture with the title “No Easter egg hunt this year” to his friends and uhm…colleagues. One of whom was black.

From AP:

Grose says he accepts that the e-mail was in poor taste and has affected his ability to lead the city. Grose said he didn’t mean to offend anyone and claimed he was unaware of the racial stereotype linking black people with eating watermelons.

Nice. He claims stupidity either way.

And if you think OC isn’t Alabama with money. Read all the comments on the OC Register story.
