ABM director, watching Amazing Race: "I'm cheering for a plane crash that kills 2 teams"
On Sunday, Carrie Lucking, the executive director of the liberal nonprofit Alliance for a Better Minnesota, wished death upon the two teams competing on the Amazing Race (facetiously).
As you'd expect, Lucking, formerly the communications director for the House DFL caucus -- she's also married to Mark Dayton's deputy chief of staff, Bob Hume -- is taking heat from Republicans for being so callous, even if she was only kidding.
Here's Lucking's tweet and the replies to it (all three of the them visible here were from guys who identify themselves as either conservative or Republican in their Twitter profiles):
Of course, some people would probably rather die than be forced to endure Amazing Race in the first place, but that's a separate conversation.
