A tweet sent out by a Democratic worker is drawing controversy for its offensive racial nature, reports WHAS-TV.
Kathy Groob got into a Twitter war arguing that Elaine Chao, the former labor secretary and wife of Republican US Senator Mitch McConnell, can’t possibly be from Kentucky, “because she’s Asian.”
That drew a firestorm on Twitter from folks who didn’t see the relationship between being from Kentucky and being Asian.
For the record, About 50,000 Asian Americans live in Kentucky, according to the US Census. As of 2009, 81 percent of their children were American citizens.
