Guess That Party: Lousiana Candidate Tells Black Civil Rights Leader "Talk To You Later, Buckwheat"

While the story does ultimately mention her husband's party affiliation, it doesn't say anything about hers.

A state representative in a runoff election infuriated civil rights leaders after she ended a conversation with the mother of the NAACP's local president by saying, "Talk to you later, Buckwheat."

[Another paragraph.]


"I made an insensitive comment when speaking with Hazel Boykin, and I have apologized to the Boykin family and publicly for my choice of words," Dartez said in a statement. "I have a strong record of fighting for issues important to the African American community; in fact, I have a 93 percent voting record with the Black Caucus."

But the "Buckwheat" remark is the latest bit of trouble for Dartez and her husband, Lenny, who is a member of the Democratic Party's State Central Committee.

So that's seven paragraphs in before the article hints at her party affiliation, but does not in fact state it.

Over at Hot Air they have a story which mentions her party affiliation in the second paragraph, but that is the way it's supposed to be done. And yet I'm guessing that 90% of the stories about this buried her partisan affiliation completely.
