Yesterday, we wrote about how Maryland Gov. Bob Ehrlich held a $100,000 fundraiser at an all-white country club. Neither Ehrlich nor Lt. Gov. Michael Steele think it was a big deal.

When Ehrlich and Steele where sworn in on January 15, 2003, here is what Steele had to say:

Forty years ago, Martin Luther King had a dream. How fitting today we celebrate not only the inauguration of a new era, but the birthday of a man who dreamed this day would come.

Email Bob Ehrlich and Michael Steele and ask them if, in light of their commitment to Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy, they will continue to support institutions that practice racial discrimination.
