Bill Minor urged to drop out of Illinois race after racial, gay slursThe Republican House floor leader in Illinois is calling on a candidate for the state legislature to drop out over accusations that he used racial and gay slurs against a candidate for attorney general.

Burt Minor, a GOP candidate for state representative in Illinois’s 42nd District, allegedly used the n-word in conversation with Erika Harold, an African-American GOP candidate for attorney general, and asked her if she was a “lesbo.”

Peter Breen, the GOP House floor leader, detailed the allegations in a letter to Republicans Thursday morning, according to Politico.
