    From Wiki

    Erika N. Harold (born February 20, 1980) was Miss America 2003, having qualified for the pageant by being selected Miss Illinois 2002. Her official platform was "Preventing Youth Violence and Bullying: Protect Yourself, Respect Yourself." This platform choice was said to have grown out of personal experience; she recounts having been the subject of racial and sexual harassment while growing up.

    While in my former life of a repup/conservative before the scum realized I was Jewish, I heard such disgusting CRAP from the repugs and saw so many disturbing e-mails circulated by them that I forever denounce them and to this day am still ashamed I ever voted repub/conservative.

    Doesn't she know how they must talk about her behind her back?  Doesn't she know she is working for people who PROMOTE the hatred she faced growing up?  

    It took me to be surrounded by the low-lifes to truly understand them, as a repug candidate, hasn't she seen enough?

      She sounds like an anti-bullying activist trying to convince a party full of bullies to slate her as their nominee for U.S. House in Illinois's 13th Congressional District.

      Going against one's own interests is a Republican hallmark.
