That's the charge made by Hilary Shelton, who heads up the Washington, D.C., chapter of the NAACP. Shelton told Ed Schultz on MSNBC Wednesday night that Romney flew in supporters to Houston to applaud him at the civil rights group's annual convention.
"The campaign actually gave me a list of African-American VIPs that they brought in to the NAACP meeting," Shelton told Schultz. "So, I’m sure those are the ones they sat down with because, quite frankly, none of the rank-and-file NAACPers met with him.”
You know, Romney did not simply waltz into the NAACP convention - he was invited. So, Shelton, what you are saying is that the only Black supporters that Romney has are the ones he brings himself, and no other Black supporters exist within the NAACP, and the NAACP purposely invited him, a White man, to speak to be booed, which makes the NAACP a bigoted, dishonest, and disingenuous organization.
