GOP: East St. Louis Toodle-Oo

February 5, 2018

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.”


“Parroting Trump: Illinois GOP official resigns after calling East St. Louis a certain vulgar name,” Fred Barbash, Washington Post


Top recording: “East St. Louis Toodle-O0,” written by Duke Ellington and Bubber Miley, recorded by Duke Ellington and his Washingtonians, 1927
