Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “GOP blasts ‘racist’ tweet by Connecticut Democratic Party comparing Black Republican, Curious George”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Republicans pounced on a tweet by the Connecticut Democratic Party that drew a comparison of a Black Republican House candidate to the cartoon monkey Curious George.

The party attacked George Logan, a GOP candidate in Connecticut’s 5th Congressional District, for allegedly not living in the district. 

In the tweet, the party mimicked the Curious George books’ “This is George” format to describe Mr. Logan, drawing criticism by Republicans and Democrats for being racially insensitive.

“For a party that claims to be open and inclusive, this sort of tweet, which was also retweeted by my opponent Jahana Hayes, certainly comes across as racially motivated,” Mr. Logan said, referring to the Democratic incumbent in the district. 

The full tweet, which has since been taken down, read: “This is George. George doesn’t live in the 5th District but wants to represent it in Congress. George’s uncle lives in the 5th District. George says he’s moved into his uncle’s house. But has he? Just run where you live, George. Deceiving voters is no way to start a campaign.”
