GOP: East St. Louis Toodle-Oo

Blair Garber, a member of the Illinois Republican Central Committee and chairman of the state’s Lottery Control Board, has resigned both positions after outcry over his tweet describing East St. Louis, Ill. as the “sh*thole of the universe!”

Guess that’s what they call an “East St. Louis Toodle-00.”
