Dallas Morning News:

Diann Jones, a vice chairman of the Collin County Republican Party, has apologized for an e-mail that some local judges denounced as racist.

But she also lashed out at judges who forwarded her e-mail and condemned her.

That action simply multiplies the offensive e-mail and enlarges the damage."
