Leavenworth St. reported yesterday on the comments by Nebraska Democrat Party Executive Committee member and Black Caucus Chair, Chelsey Gentry-Tipton, on Facebook after the attempted assassinations of Members of Congress.
As noted here, Gentry-Tipton wrote the following (in a response to another post):
She then proceeded to double-down on these comments, along with others:
(You can also note the other reprehensible comments in this post.)
Leavenworth St. and others called on NDP Chair Jane Kleeb to take some sort of action regarding this. Kleeb stated on Twitter:

Yes, the NDP officers have asked her to resign. As you know, I do not tolerate this type of reckless behavior.

Well, she may have asked her to resign, but Gentry-Tipton is apparently having none of it:
As noted here earlier this week, Central Committee member Linda Anderson resigned after her apparent disagreement with the party’s procedures.
But at least this time Kleeb did the appropriate thing by going all the way to call for her resignation.
It waits to be seen what the follow-up will be, and whether other members of the party go the extra step and remove her from that leadership position.
What a mess.
