DELEGATE FOR OBAMA QUITS OVER REMARKS: “Barack Obama’s campaign persuaded a delegate to step down after she was ticketed for calling her neighbor’s African-American children ‘monkeys.’ . . . The only Hispanic on the board, Ramirez-Sliwinski has been a strong voice for Carpentersville’s 40 percent Hispanic population. She and Village President Bill Sarto opposed an English-only proposition and an ordinance to crack down on illegal immigrants.”

Ticketed? It doesn’t say for what.

UPDATE: Tom Maguire emails that she was ticketed for “disorderly conduct.” Seems weak to me.
