Trump delegate sent home after posting ‘brave snipers just waiting for some n– to try something’
The white pride Trump delegate was sent home to Illinois.
Lori Gayne, a delegate from the Fifth Congressional District, posted a photo of law enforcement officers standing on the roof of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, along with a racist caption, reported the Chicago Sun-Times.
“Our brave snipers just waiting for some N—- to try something. Love them,” Gayne posted.
Gayne, who used an abbreviation for the racial slur, admitted to the newspaper that she had made the post using a different name.
Tim Schneider, the Illinois GOP chairman, said Gayne’s convention credentials had been revoked over the racist comments, which the delegate brought to his attention after she was contacted by a newspaper reporter.
