Rapid City council member Bill Clayton is a fucking dick
In March, there was a controversial tax increase bill before the council. Taisha Walker, a reporter for a local tv station and a black woman, contacted Clayton by phone and interviewed him about the controversial bill and asked him how he was going to vote.
This pissed Clayton off. He doesn’t take kindly to members of the community he serves asking him how he’s going to vote in a PUBLIC setting, especially black ones. Keep in mind that his vote in this situation would not be a private, secret ballot vote, but a PUBLIC vote before the community he serves. Taisha Walker was just doing her job as a reporter.
But he got all pissy about her question anyway because, as the title of this short article points out, he’s a fucking dick.
“Should we deport you back to Kenya with Obama?” Clayton snipped at her. “Are you even American?”
Yes, these are his actual quotes to her. As you can see, this short article is very aptly titled.
It blew up and now most people want him to resign, including half the city council. But he won’t go. He feels he’s being unfairly targeted, even victimized by the weaker wing of the council. He does say he’s sorry that Taisha Walker got dragged into this whole political in-fighting mess, though.
“In the larger scheme of things,” Bill Clayton says, “this is not about me and Taisha Walker.”
He says that because he is a fucking dick.
