MNGOP Chair Keith Downey calls on DFL to condemn controversial Facebook post

County-level branches of the MNGOP are certainly no strangers to getting themselves in trouble for controversial Facebook posts, but for once, the shoe is on the other foot.

Star Tribune political reporter Rachel Stassen-Berger published the tweet at the top of this post last night. The image in it was originally posted in August on the Douglas County DFL's Facebook page.

Douglas County, of course, is best known politically as the county produced one of our old favorites, MNGOP Rep. Mary Franson.

In any event, Stassen-Berger's tweet promoted MNGOP Chair Keith Downey to call for his DFL counterpart, Ken Martin (Martin is no stranger to Twitter feuds):

But Martin, so far, has remained mum, and as I write this the controversial post unapologetically remains on the Douglas County DFL's page.
