Texas Democrat Gary O’Connor Faces Calls to Resign After He Called Tim Scott an “Oreo”

A Texas Democratic official is now facing calls to resign from his post after calling Republican Senator Tim Scott an “Oreo.”

Lamar County Democratic Party chair Gary O’Connor called Scott an “oreo” after  Senator Scott delivered his rebuttal speech to President Biden’s congressional address on Wednesday.

“I had hoped that Scott might show some common sense, but it seems clear he is little more than an oreo with no real principles,” O’Connor wrote in a since-deleted post on Facebook.

Now Republican representative Pat Fallon called O’Connor’s post “unforgivable.” The congressman is calling for O’Connor to “apologize and step down immediately” and called on the Texas Democratic Party and the NAACP “to condemn these words.”

“Gary O’Connor’s comment against Senator Tim Scott is abhorrent, insulting, and unforgivable. Both he and the entire Lamar County Democratic Party should be ashamed of this racist behavior,” Fallon said in a statement to the press.
