Illinois GOP Official Jim Allen Resigns After 'Street Walker' Comments
Republican county chairman from Illinois Jim Allen shocked us Thursday with his "street walker" remarks aimed at a former Miss America. Now, on Friday, Allen has resigned following the backlash over his comments.
In a very public email to a Republican website, Allen called congressional candidate and former Miss America Erika Harold a "love child" and "street walker" who's answering to her "pimps." Harold, a Republican, is running for the congressional seat in Illinois' thirteenth district against Representative Rodney Davis, whom Allen supports.
"I apologize to Miss Harold and her campaign and her supporters," Allen said.
