Dr. Marvin Scott, an African-American Republican candidate for Indiana's 7th Congressional District, is no stranger to controversy. The perennial candidate, he is running against Rep Andre Carson, an African-American Muslim and has repeatedly faced charges of anti-Islamic bigotry by both his campaign and supporters. The tea party candidate's campaign manager, Stan Solomon, has kicked it up a notch lately on Twitter.
Not only is Solomon tweeting out xenophobic and racist statements, he's also using extremely offensive anti-gay slurs like "Gay stands for Got AIDS Yet?," "U should not allow queers around kids," and "Homosexuality is wrong & dangerous to everyone." He also calls for the murder of abortion providers, the destruction of the Muslim holy cities of Mecca and Medina, and refers to African Americans as "niggas."
Dr. Scott should immediately fire Solomon but if his previous reactions to charges of anti-Muslim campaign materials and statements by supporters are any example, Solomon won't get more than a slap on the wrist. Screenshots of some of Solomon's anti-gay tweets after the jump.
