In a major breaking story, Congresswoman Joann Emerson was one of a handful of Republican representatives, spotted energizing a Tea Party Protest crowd in the Capitol yelling racial and homophobic slurs at Democrats.
This is the same crowd that reportedly yelled racial and homophobic slurs leading to House Democrats walking through the halls of the capitol locked arm in arm in what was called a "chaotic scene".
The breaking news is coming very fast. However, this is a clear tie to the Republican Party having Congressional members directly firing up these protestors as they acted in this behavior.
Congresswoman Emerson is the US Congresswoman of Lt. Governor Peter Kinder, seen as the leader of the Missouri Republican Party.
We at the KC Blue Blog are now calling on Congresswoman Emerson, Lt. Governor Kinder and the Missouri Republican Party to publicly apologize for being involved in such insulting, shameful behavior.
