Democratic Socialist candidate Sara Innamorato’s despicable comments were made on a podcast earlier this month. “I look at my district and it’s 93 percent white,” she said. “My district, which I know is like white working class, poor folk who are racist because it’s so much easier for them to look to their side and say, ‘I’m going to blame that person.’”
She beat out longtime incumbent Democrat Dom Costa in the primary and the kicker is she’s running unopposed. Now there’s a new write-in effort to get Mr. Costa back in office.

Sara Innamorato is a Democratic Socialist candidate running for Pennsylvania state representative.
After defeating incumbent Rep. Dom Costa in the Democratic primary, she appeared to be coasting to victory, but then made this comment while recording a podcast about her future constituents.
“I just look at my district, right? And it’s 93 percent white. My district, which I know is like white working class, poor folk, who are racist, because it’s so much easier for them to look to their side and say, ‘I’m going to blame that person.’”
It’s causing a backlash.
Gary Britcher, a Republican from Aspinwall, has organized what he calls a bi-partisan a write in campaign for Rep. Costa.
“We are not racist, and I don’t think we should send someone to Harrisburg that has that mindset that her constituents are racist,” he said.
Innamorato declined an on-camera interview, but sent a lengthy statement about her comment on the Drinking Partners Podcast, a conversation about racism. More
Elections are basically a biyearly IQ test, and if you vote for a Democratic Socialist, you fail the test big time. This woman clearly called every single one of her white constituents a racist because that’s what she has been brainwashed into believing… That all white people are racist.
“Hate begets hate…” so says the person who calls everyone a racist. Oh, the irony. But I bet that is lost on this idiot.
