Young Republicans Elect Audra Shay Chair...Yes...that Audra Shay
In case you didn't notice the smell of elephant in town, Young Republican National Federation has had its national convention here over the past few days. According to the Daily Kos, they have elected Audra Shay as Chair of the organization. The Huffington Post has also documented the controversy here.
Shay drew fire over some her responses to friends' Facebook posts on her profile. If you want to read what they were, click on the links above. I'd rather not repeat them here on this blog.
Bottom line is that the Young Republicans National Federation apparently doesn't have a problem with someone who might be Anti-Muslim, Anti-gay, or Anti-African American. I don't know Ms. Shay personally, but Shay's election has already started a Facebook Group in protest of her election.
You wonder, too, how a 38-year old might be still considered a "Young Republican" in this day and age. I believe 35 years old is the cutoff for Young Democrats. At this rate, John McCain may still be eligible.
