GOP leader confirms Abrams' racial slur

Montgomery County GOP leader Tom Reinheimer confirms to the Gazette that Steve Abrams used a racial slur against an African-American former candidate for County Council.

The Gazette reports, "Abrams told Reinheimer 'to call off his boy,' Owen-Williams said.

"Reinheimer confirmed that Abrams referred to Owen-Williams as a 'boy' several times.

"'I wasn’t used to hearing that, and I’m not sure why he was referring to Adol as my "boy,"' Reinheimer said."

Owen-Williams is 42 years old.
