Illinois Congressman uses racial slur to describe town hall meetings

Posted: Updated:

CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) - An Illinois congressman has compared town hall meetings with constituents to what he described as the practice of "cleansing" by "Orientals."

Republican Rep. Mike Bost made the assertion during a meeting with the editorial board of the Southern Illinoisan in Carbondale.

Bost visited his 12th District last week during a congressional recess. But he hosted a tele-town hall instead of an in-person one.
