English: Sheila Johnson at the 2008 Tribeca Al...

Sheila Johnson, the billionaire whose money came from Black Entertainment Television, the cable channel she co-founded with her former husband, made fun of the Democratic gubernatorial candidate Creigh Deeds who sometimes stutters when he speaks.

Speaking to a group of supporters of Republican candidate Bob McDonnell, Johnson said:

“We need someone who can really communicate. And Bob McDonnell can communicate. The other people that I talk to, especially his op-op-op-op-op-op opponent could not articulate what needed to be done. He did this all through my interview with him.”

Now, Deeds does stutter. But that really does not affect his ability to communicate. Check out the interview below.

I’m thinking Ms. Johnson needs to apologize. That’s just not cool. [via]
