Mayor Charles Wasko is under pressure to resign over racists posts of orangutans labeled as the Obamas. Now, I hate Barack Obama because of his policies and his corruptness. Those are fair game but this is just pure racism. The moment he was caught, he should have resigned.
Wasko has no allies left after the posts were discovered. The republicans and the democrats on the city council all want him gone. He posted a picture of a single orangutan with a note that said, “Most think it is Obama’s picture……sorry its Moochelles baby photo”
On Feb 5th , he posted a picture of Clint Eastwood looking through a noose with the words:
“Barry, This rope is for you. You wanna bring that empty chair over here!”
“Now that York NAACP has been made aware, we will be seeking to take action, because his obvious bias against black people has an effect on all his constituents, which he seems to forget includes black people,” Thompson said.
The borough’s population was roughly 86 percent white in the 2010 census and 12 percent black.
Wasko didn’t respond to a Facebook message from The Associated Press and wasn’t answering his home telephone Thursday. Reached by the York Daily Record on Wednesday night, Wasko dismissed the concerns as “bulls— that’s going on up at the borough office.”
Wasko isn’t paid as mayor and votes only to break ties on the council. But he also oversees the police department in the borough, where the acting chief, Matthew Millsaps, said he was “disturbed” by the images.
“This in no way reflects the ideology of this department,” Millsaps said, noting the department has a Hispanic man and black woman among its eight officers.
