West Virginia Mayor Steps Down After Racist FLOTUS Remark
By The Daily Beast,Nov. 15, 2016
A mayor of a small West Virginia town has resigned amid scandal after seemingly supporting a racist comment made against Michelle Obama. Beverly Whaling, the mayor of the town of Clay, resigned Tuesday after inciting a furor with a racist Facebook post. In the wake of Donald Trump’s surprise win, Pamela Ramsey Taylor, the director of the Clay County Development Corp., took to Facebook to express her delight with getting rid of the “ape in heels” in the White House, an apparent reference to first lady Michelle Obama.
