Don Yelton, GOP Precinct Chair resigned after this Daily Show interview.
“Yes, he has resigned,” said Nathan West, a spokesman for the Buncombe County Republican Party. The party had asked for Don Yelton’s resignation in direct response to the interview, West said. “Mr. Yelton’s comments are offensive, uninformed, and unacceptable of any member within the Republican Party,” the statement read. “In no way are his comments representative of the local or state Republican Party.”
