Hi-five Mr. Pallone.

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. ย “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.”
