Lamar County Democratic Party chair Gary O’Connor wrote a scathing Facebook post in response to Scott’s remarks. He has since deleted his post.

“I had hoped that Scott might show some common sense, but it seems clear he is little more than an oreo with no real principles,” O’Connor said.

US Rep. Pat Fallon (R-Tx) represents the portion of the state that includes Lamar County. On Friday, he posted a press release calling for O’Connor to step down. saying the racial comment is “abhorrent.”

Fallon called on the NAACP and Texas Democratic party to condemn the comment.

His LinkedIn page features a picture of himself with former president Bill Clinton, a subject of his conspiracy theories, and lists his various marketing and operations positions in politics and tech.
