Mayor called Obamas "monkey man" and "gorilla face", but "I'm not a racist"


Last week Patrick Rushing, mayor of Airway Heights, Washington, posted a comment to Facebook which read, "Gorilla face Michelle, can't disagree with that. The woman is not attractive except to monkey man Barack. Check out them ears. LOL." When people suggested he resign from office for his racist slur, Rushing said, "I made a mistake. I owned up to my mistake. If I do resign that's admitting I'm a racist and I'm not."

"My entire life race has never been an issue," Rushing said. Check out 75 other "mistakes" that Rushing posted to his Facebook page.
