Republican Party of Orange County Chairman Fred M. Whitaker (pictured left) released the following statement after Fox News released video of Democratic Party of Orange County Vice-Chair Jeff LeTourneau (above) verbally attacking gay volunteers who were collecting signatures for the effort to recall Democrat Senator Josh Newman:

"Jeff LeTourneau's outrageous and unacceptable verbal attack against gay volunteers collecting signatures to recall Josh Newman is intolerance at its worst and we completely reject it.

As Chairman of the Republican Party of Orange County, I call on Jeff LeTourneau to resign as Vice-Chair of the Democratic Party of Orange County.

I also call on both the Democratic Party of Orange County and Senator Josh Newman to officially condemn Jeff LeTourneau's vicious tirade. 

As a community, we must stand together and oppose this kind of intimidation - it has no place in civil society."

-- Fred Whitaker, Chairman of the Republican Party of Orange County
