Republican Party Chairman Resigns In Wake Of Controversy That Took Down Committee Secretary

Beaver County Republican Committee Chairman Chip Kohser has tendered his resignation effective immediately. Kohser’s departure from party leadership follows an investigative report by BeaverCountian.com on August 29 that first exposed a series of racially charged social media posts made by then-party secretary Carla Maloney. Maloney’s Facebook rants referred to African American NFL athletes as “baboons,”…

He doesn’t appear to admit that he did anything wrong; he just “forgot.” Does this mean that he stands by his actions up to this point? This is just more posturing by politics behaving badly.

And now the Democrats have to explain the forged signatures of Aliquippa residents on Craig’s petitions.

Sounds good. But, really, of what value is the BC Republican Committee anyway?

As a republican, I tend to agree with you. They have zero value. In last years elections, they failed miserably to support their candidates both financially and logistically. They found excuse after excuse to not support their own candidates after the primary elections. There are currently democrats in office today because of their ineptness.

Well good job and a prompt decision. So take the wife out for a movie and dinner, and tomorrow grab a couple six packs of beer and watch the big game. Mr Lincoln was also well known for saying ” Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow, the shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing”.

All of this chatter meaningless.
In the end , our cherished nation is headed so obviously to a civil war.

It is incredibly disturbing that anyone would use such derogatory and ignorant words to describe another human being, for all the world to see. How did Mr. Kohser deal with it privately? He forgot because it must not have been too objectionable for him.

Obviously those ugly words didn’t faze him one bit, if they did he would have acted immediately. Raise your hand if you will today and always have stood during the national anthem in your homes, bars or wherever you go to watch the games. Raise your hand if you are not one of the thousands who have, in the past, laughed, talked, eaten and kept your hats on when attending the games. If only you could be honest with yourselves.

I am a white male. I call my children “monkeys” all the time. I have referred to both black and white peoples as, “babbling baboons”.
It’s really not that big a deal. This country has deteriorated into a mob state, where every comment is under the PC scrutiny.
“white people” DO pay their salaries. Most NFL owners are white, as is 85% of this country. Simple math.
As far as her “back to Africa” comment, I can understand being so upset with a group of people that you want them to simply go away. She’s allowed to feel that way and voice her frustration.
We are walking on thin ice if we try to regulate thought.

Truthful – maloney was not calling HER KIDS monkeys. I would like to take you(Truthful) to places where you would never call an African American a babbling baboon. She chose social media to rant. It was a racist attack, and this behavior must change. There will always be people like yourself, and that’s a shame.

Regulate thought? You are so out of touch on this entire matter. Look things up, GOOGLE, learn. This issue is not about what someone thinks. Don’t fight to always be right.

Hit enter too soon. Should have added..”talked, eaten, worn hats” during the national anthem at the games.

You know veterans and those in active service who are not in uniform are permitted to keep their hats on and salute during the national anthem. Don’t judge everybody who doesn’t remove their hat.

It is happening all across the US-local Republican leaders/council members are getting thrown out or brought to light in recent months. The dumbass in the White House is amping up the dumb among us—“THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE” so please Christian “conservatives” tell us liberals the how special yinz are-just your true selves that’s all and then finally some normalcy will come this November.
