Another hater loses his tax-free sinecure...

Mayor who sent White House watermelon e-mail resigns:
Los Alamitos, CA Mayor Dean Grose has announced that he will be stepping
down from his position on March 2, after sending an “e-mail picture depicting
the White House lawn planted with watermelons under the title ‘No Easter egg
hunt this year.’” One recipient, local businesswoman and community volunteer
Keyanus Price, who is also African-American, said that she was “horrified” when
she received the e-mail on Sunday, and replied, “Not all black people like
watermelon… you should know better than that.” Grose wrote back, “The way things are today, you gotta laugh every now and then. I wanna see the coloring
contests.” Grose has since apologized, saying the picture was never meant to
offend anyone “from the standpoint of the African-American race.”

No, of course not.
