Gary Frago Apologizes on Camera for his Racist Emails

It appears that we could have a decision tonight in the ongoing controversy over Atwater city leader Gary Frago. He may lose his job on the city council after emails found at his office containing racial jokes were discovered by the Merced Sun Star.

Check out this video from local reporter John-Thomas Kobos, who met with the city councilman and a NAACP leader who is calling for his resignation.

In my view there is no place for this type of racist behavior in public office. I think that Mr. Frago should resign in disgrace. What do you think?

A pink slip is in order for Frago's behavior. He is truly old enough to realize that the content of the e-mails were racist.

Doesn't this make you wonder what is said about the people of color whoare in the GOP's base? I would love to see what they say about Michael "de man" Steele.

Lady D - I'm sure that Michael Steele is the butt of many jokes from his melanin-challenged colleagues in the Republican Party. I'm equally sure that Frago will eventually be forced out of office ... although I was saddened to see that his conscience didn't force him to leave office last night at the Atwater City Council meeting...
