The grossest part, I held my nose and voted for this clown when he ran against Ed Markey for Kerry’s Senate seat (as did the people he slandered).

Via Daily Caller:

Gabriel Gomez, the Massachusetts Republican who lost a special election to replace now-Secretary of State John Kerry, apologized Monday after a weekend-long social media saga that began when he labeled two state Republican activists part of the “Klan.”

Gomez admitted that the tiff wasn’t caused by any single action by the two activists – Rob Eno, who publishes the conservative site Red Mass Group, and Christopher Pinto, who is a Republican in Worcester. The Boston Globe reports that Gomez characterized the post as “a general response to Red Mass Group, as well as to activists questioning whether he, GOP gubernatorial hopeful Charlie Baker, and former U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, were real Republicans.”

Gomez also cited actions by New Hampshire conservatives, who recently protested Brown’s call for a federal ban on “assault” rifles.

The message, which Gomez printed Saturday and later deleted, read, “I thank God every day for people like Chris Pinto and Rob Eno because they serve as perfect examples for my kids of who and what not to be when they grow up … the level of ignorance and intolerance exhibited by them and their small ‘Klan’ are an embarrassment to our civil society. Merry Christmas.”
