Tennessee GOP Ousts House Speaker Who Was Too Racist and Sexist Even for Them — The Root

After weeks of turmoil following a text message scandal involving his top aide, Tennessee House Speaker Glen Casada announced he was stepping down from his role on Tuesday night.

The texts, leaked earlier this month, were sent from Casada’s then-chief of staff, Cade Cothren, and contained a vibrant melange of sexist, racist commentary. Among the most disturbing messages Cothren sent: calling Tampa Bay quarterback Jameis Winston a “thug nigger,” referring to black people as “idiots,” and bragging to Casada about having sex with a woman in a restaurant bathroom. https://www.theroot.com/tennessee-gop-ousts-house-speaker-who-was-too-racist-an-1834946129
