Chisago County GOP Under Fire For Slavery Image Posted On Facebook

Thursday, October 31st, 2013 at 6:24 am

A Facebook posting has forced the Chisago County Republican Party to apologize.

KSTP reports that a slavery related image was posted Wednesday morning on the Facebook page, but was taken down hours later. The report states that actually, the entire Chisago GOP Facebook page was down for a while.

The page reappeared later in the day and the Chair of the Chisago GOP issued an apology saying, “It should not have been posted, and the party is saddened by it.”

The caption on the controversial post said “Slavery, against it? Don’t buy one.”

KSTP says the Chisago GOP is trying to figure out who posted the image and will take appropriate action.
