Tax dollars for NASCAR? Betty McCollum says no.
Rep. Betty McCollum has become the target of some vile hate mail from a NASCAR fan.

The St. Paul congresswoman just tried unsuccessfully to defund the U.S. Army's $7 million NASCAR car sponsorship, labeling it as a waste of taxpayer money.

For that, a message faxed anonymously to her office called McCollum a "JoBama Rectum Sniffing Slut." The message included a drawing of a pickup truck towing the head of President Barack Obama in a noose.

"Taxpayer-funded NASCAR race cars are an absurdity at a time when the Republican-Tea Party is cutting federal support for homeless veterans, law enforcement officers and firefighters," the St. Paul Democrat said yesterday.

Here's the fax she received in return.

Maria Reppas, McCollum's spokeswoman, said this morning that Capitol police are investigating the source of the message.

The South shall rise again, now that they've mastered the use of different fonts.

Do you think you could drive in Daytona? Your first test will be how well your picture stays on Mike Wallace’s No. 1 Cowboys & Aliens Chevrolet NASCAR. Upload a photo of yourself and your image will be added to his car! Upload here: http://bit.ly/lhWIFn

"You can't pretend you aren't hateful."

One idiot means we're all "hateful"?

You can't pretend you're not a bigot.

(Is that the we we're going to play this? I sure hope not)

BTW - wait 'til the Cap Police actually find someone before assigning blame; there've been more than a few false flag slanders sent in my Democrats.

Just saying.

Yeah, keep pretending that the vast majority of bigots and sociopaths aren't on your side of the aisle. "But, but, but this one time, a Democrat said this!!"... right.

so...racist and sexist threats are cool, but they have to use "phucking" because F-bombs would just be taking it too far.

Also, note to all those who like to use "Barack Hussein Obama" when commenting about him: this is the type of guy you're in league with. You can't pretend you aren't hateful.

Also note avoiding the obvious "ass" in favour of supposedly non-verboten "rectum".
