NPR reports on how GOP Mailing Depicts Obama on Food Stamps, Not Dollar Bill.
<!-- start center column 1-->
A Republican women's group in California is the latest GOP organization to be accused of racism against Barack Obama. A mailing distributed by the Chaffey Community Republican Women in October says if Obama is elected his image will appear on food stamps, and not on normal dollar bills like other presidents.
The statement is followed by an illustration, naturally. Labeled "United States Food Stamps," the fake $10 bill features Obama's face on a donkey's body, which is surrounded by a bucket of KFC, watermelon, and the Kool-Aid man.
The group's president, Diane Fedele, said she plans to send an apology letter to her members and to apologize at the club's meeting next week. She said she simply wanted to deride a comment Obama made over the summer about how as an African-American he "doesn't look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills."
