Indiana's Secretary Of State Pulls An "Imus"

Ok, what was Todd Rokita thinking, especially after what Don Imus did. From the South Bend Tribune:
Indiana's secretary of state asked forgiveness Monday for evoking images of slavery in describing black voting trends during a Republican event in southern Indiana last week.

During a Thursday speech at the Daviess County annual Lincoln Day Dinner, Republican Secretary of State Todd Rokita said 90 percent of blacks vote Democrat and questioned why.

"How can that be?" Rokita was quoted as saying by the Washington Times-Herald. "90 to 10. Who's the master and who's the slave in that relationship? How can that be healthy?"

Several black lawmakers expressed anger over the remarks.
