McAuliffe Staffer Apologizes for Racist Tweets

'I am ashamed and I profoundly regret what I tweeted. I take full responsibility and I want to profoundly apologize and use this as a moment to grow and learn from my mistakes.'

(Headline USA) Just days out from Virginia’s gubernatorial election, a top staffer for the Democratic candidate has been caught in a scandal over racist tweets.

Olivari reportedly apologized in a statement to Breitbart News, where he called his tweets “clearly unacceptable.”

“As a person of color, I have tried to live my whole life fighting for communities like mine,” Olivari told Breitbart News. “When I was in high school student, I tweeted things that were clearly unacceptable. I am ashamed and I profoundly regret what I tweeted. I take full responsibility and I want to profoundly apologize and use this as a moment to grow and learn from my mistakes. I will continue working to fight for communities like mine in every way that I can.”

Recent polling shows the two candidates are in a near tie in the race, which ends Nov. 2, leaving the best chance for a red Virginia in years. RealClearPolitics and FiveThirtyEight both show Youngkin with a lead.

McAuliffe’s latest staffer scandal isn’t likely to help, and it isn’t the only one. Another McAuliffe staffer accidentally emailed a Fox News reporter about trying to “kill” a story suggesting McAuliffe was already potentially planning to challenge the state’s election results.
