MD House of Delegates formally censures Del. Lisanti for racial slur

ANNAPOLIS (WBFF) - The state's House of Delegates voted unanimously Thursday to formally censure Del. Mary Ann Lisanti for using a racial slur.

Meanwhile, Harford County community leaders are joining in calls for the longtime elected official, a Democrat from Havre de Grace, to resign.

Condemnations came Thursday from local Democratic and Republican groups.

Lisanti represents "the most diverse area in Harford County," where "more than 64% of the [county's] African-Americans reside," wrote Denise Perry, chair of the Harford County Democratic Central Committee. "Her use of a racial slur is not only disturbing, she let down the very people who put her in office."

If she was wearing black face or a kkk uniform or handing out Cotten to black kids while standing in former slave quarters that would be OKAY. Speech is a crime.
