The head of the Lamar County, Texas Democratic Party, Gary O’Connor, offered his resignation after he made a racist comment about South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott.

O’Connor, who is white, called Scott, who is black, “an Oreo with no principles.”

After a furor over his remarks, O’Connor offered up his resignation.

However, the party reportedly turned down the resignation offer and is allowing O’Connor to retain his position.
