The liberal Web site Daily Kos has a posting today accusing Republican Congressional candidate Mike Pompeo of tweeting campaign supporters over to a blog post that refers to his Democratic opponent, Raj Goyle, who is of Indian descent, as a “turban topper.” The post also attacks Goyle on his religion.
Goyle spokesman Robert Becker issued a statement saying:
“His (Pompeo’s) campaign published this bigoted attack online under the heading “here’s a good read.” This goes beyond the rules of engagement in politics. This violates the principles and core values of Kansans.”
Pompeo spokesman Josh Wells said the campaign is preparing a written response.
Never miss a local story.
