The Black Conservative Fund released a video on YouTube Tuesday showing a union worker verbally abusing ACORN whistleblower Anita MonCrief outside a debate between Louisiana Senate candidates Mary Landrieu and Bill Cassidy.
According to the conservative organization, Ms. MonCrief was waving a “Blacks against Landrieu” sign in a show of support for Cassidy, the Republican candidate who is leading the three-term Democratic incumbent Landrieu in the polls.
A union worker began to speak with Ms. MonCrief and told her she should go “go down on Bill,” in reference to Cassidy. Ms. MonCrief addressed the union worker and said she was offended, but he proceeded to deny the remark and moved close to her in an attempt to intimidate her.
Ms. MonCrief said she was “appalled, but not surprised” by the man’s behavior, and that she felt like the man thought she “wasn’t in [her] place.” Reflecting on her past with ACORN, Ms. MonCrief said, “I’ve learned not to back down … and I was scared.”
The debate was the only one that will be held for the runoff race that kicked off last month after neither Sen. Landrieu nor Mr. Cassidy landed 50 percent of the vote.
