Considering the recent fall-out involving LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling, Washington Democrats have not picked the best time to accept $65,000 from known racist and cult leader JZ Knight.
This week, the Olympia Report and the NW Daily Marker reported on Knight’s large contribution to Thurston County Democratic Central Committee in 2014. Since then, Democrats have refused to return the money.
According to the Olympian, Thurston County Democrat Party chairman Roger Erskine went so far as to say that Knight “is in fact a good Democrat…” Democrats are not only “comfortable” with accepting Knight’s contribution, they are “thankful for the gift.”
Videos and audio have since resurfaced detailing Knight’s racist rants.
