Oh, Oh Sheila
Sheila Johnson, co-founder of BET Television, demonstrates that she is equally as tasteless and ridiculous as former husband Bob Johnson when it comes to endorsing political candidates. Bob Johnson, who was a fervent supporter of Hillary Clinton, launched a particularly personal attack against Barack Obama during the Democratic presidential primaries. When the public outcry turned up the heat, Johnson later backed away from his comments. Now Sheila Johnson, who supports Republican Bob McDonnell in the Virginia gubernatorial contest, openly mocks Democratic candidate Creigh Deeds for being a stutterer. It would not be at all surprising to see Sheila attempt to distance herself from those remarks and issue a lame apology. Such is how these things are usually played out.
