GOP chairman resigns after saying Native American candidate should be "sent to the reservation"


October 15, 2018

Kansas Republican Michael Kalny has resigned from his position as a precinct committeeman after he made racist and homophobic comments about Kansas Democratic congressional candidate Sharice Davids, who is openly gay.

Earlier this week, Kalny wrote of Davids in a Facebook post, "your radical socialist kickboxing lesbian Indian will be sent backpacking to the reservation" — an apparent reference to her Native American heritage. Davids is a member of the Ho-Chunk Nation tribe and is vying for the seat in Kansas' third district occupied by four-term Republican Rep. Kevin Yoder.
