Aaron Schock's Senior Adviser resigns over Racist Facebook Posts

I try not to be the one who trolls Aaron Schock, but this story is too good.

Aaron's senior adviser, Benjamin Cole has a nasty habit of being racist. On his Facebook page, Mr. Cole shared his views on Black folks and Muslims.

Here are some examples unearthed by Thinkprogress  and Buzzfeed

First, he compared Black folks to zoo animals. Then, he took a dig at the president with this mosque post.

Well, the story went viral (mostly because of the Aaron Schock's office drama) and now, Benjamin has resigned from his post. Aaron told the Journal Star:
"I am extremely disappointed by the inexcusable and offensive online comments made by a member of my staff," Schock said in a statement to the Journal Star. "I would expect better from any member of my team. Upon learning about them I met with Mr. Cole and he offered his resignation which I have accepted."
Ben, Ben, Ben, you should've known better. Saying stuff like that will always get you called out or better yet, fired

Schock should have known better, too, since the one about Obama is four years old.

Effing Republicans who do nothing about this until they are caught and forced to respond.
