Racism or obscure South Carolina reference, you decide

Outgoing South Carolina Democratic Chairman Dick Harpootlian told a Democratic rally that next year his party will win the gubernatorial election and “send Nikki Haley back to wherever the hell she came from.” Haley is an Indian-American who was raised in South Carolina. Her parents are Sikh immigrants.

Harpootlian claims he meant the election results would send Gov. Haley back to Lexington County where she used to live.

Last year, Harpootlian said that Haley “was down in the bunker a la Eva Braun.” He must have meant Eva Braun of Spartanburg.
