Man sends over 2,000 potatoes to Wisconsin politician who refuses to hold a town hall

  • What would you do with 2,000 potatoes? Make some French fries? A mammoth batch of buttery mashed potatoes? Homemade potato chips? Perhaps a large cheesy gratin?
  • Sen. Ron Johnson better start thinking. On Friday, a whopping 1,920 potatoes were en route to the Wisconsin Republican’s office to join the ones that had already arrived earlier in the week. Read more. (4/7/17, 3:58 PM)

GOP candidate Robbie Gatti tries to explain why he dressed as Tiger Woods in blackface at church

  • Robbie Gatti is running for the Louisiana state legislature’s eighth district seat in April, but his campaign is in trouble due to a blackface photo.
  • On Monday, conservative publication the Hayride published an image of Gatti — a Republican and an ordained minister — wearing blackface and a bootleg Nike cap at a church event.
  • Reached by phone, Gatti told Mic that he regretted the incident and that the photo was taken 15 years ago, at a church event where attendees were asked to dress up as someone famous.
  • “I dressed up as Tiger Woods,” he said. “Woods was at the height of his success at the time. He was the number one golfer in the world. This was before his troubles [with infidelity became public]." 
  • "I would never do this again,” he said. “I have too many black pastors that are friends. I am completely colorblind. I don’t have a racist bone in my body.” Read more (2/28/17 12:08 PM)

A letter from Joe Biden to his staff:

To My Wonderful Staff,
I would like to take a moment and make something clear to everyone. I do not expect, nor do I want, any of you to miss or sacrifice important family obligations for work. Family obligations include, but are not limited to, family birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, any religious ceremonies, such as first communions and bar mitzvahs, graduations, and times of need, such as an illness or a loss in the family. This is very important to me. In fact, I will go so far as to say that if I find out that you are working with me while missing important family responsibilities, it will disappoint me greatly. This has been an unwritten rule since my days in the Senate.
Thank you all for the hard work.
Sincerely, Joe
