Maine GOP Chairman Didn’t Mean to Single Out Black People (He’s Also Concerned About the Chinese)

Lest you get the idea that overly suspicious Maine GOP chairman Charlie Webster has something against black people, think again. “I know black people,” Webster tells TPM. “I play basketball every Sunday with a black guy.” Besides, Webster wasn’t trying to single out black voters. There was also that one Chinese guy who apparently voted without being cleared first by the White Man:

If you live in a town of a few hundred people and you go to the post office every day, if there’s someone who doesn’t look like you, you usually know that,” Webster said. “And that’s why when folks called me and said, ‘Where did this Chinese man come from? We don’t have any Chinese people here. Where did they come from?” Well, I don’t know! It’s a good point.”

Jesus, did any white people vote in Maine last week?
