"Young GOP Chooses Hate"

The Daily Beast reports that Audra Shay (pictured), the Young Republican leader who became the subject of a national controversy after racist comments she wrote on Facebook and other social networking sites became known, won the race to become head of the Young Republicans by approximately 50 votes (out of about 950 voting delegates) at their national convention this afternoon in Indianapolis.

This Indianapolis Observer is appalled.

I haven't followed this closely, but I thought she was posting in a thread which had racist comments, not that her own comments were racist. By doing that though, it looked like she was endorsing the racist comments.

That's about the extent of which I know about that controversy.
