KFI Gets Marilyn Davenport On President Obama-Ape Email

UPDATED, APRIL 20, 3:30 P.M.: Go HERE to read what happened during the KFI interview. 

Original post, APRIL 18, 9:30 P.M.: Marilyn Davenport, the Fullerton grandmother and Republican official who gained national notoriety on April 15 after distributing a racist email image of President Barack Obama as a chimpanzee, has agreed to appear live Wednesday on California's powerhouse talk radio network.

The deal was set today, according to Tim Whitacre, a Santa Ana Republican activist and former U.S. Marine who is advising and supporting Davenport while Orange County Republican Party Chairman Scott Baugh, the man who defeated Whitacre for the party's top slot earlier this year, is calling on Davenport to resign over the scandal.

"Given the unfair light in which Marilyn has been portrayed by some opportunistic local Republican leaders, it is important for the public to hear straight from her," Whitacre said. "She has been falsely accused of being a racist."


John and Ken

program, where Davenport will appear, is the leading political talk radio show in California, if not the nation. You can hear them weekdays from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m at 640 on the AM dial.

You can read my prior, exclusive coverage of the affair HERE.

Davenport is, I am told, set to appear during the first hour of the broadcast.
