Say What?

Saline County, Kansas, commissioner Jim Gile is being pressured to resign after using the n-word at a county meeting. Gile said that the county should hire an architect to work on its Road and Bridge Department building rather than n----r-rigging it. When asked what he'd said, he replied African-Americanized, which some might consider just as offensive.
