Arizona Secretary of State and Gubernatorial Candidate Katie Hobbs issued a public apology to Talonya Adams for her racial discrimination and “shortsighted” response to the court’s verdict.
The Gateway Pundit reported that Katie Hobbs, once the Democratic frontrunner for Governor, might not be so popular after a federal jury awarded Taloyna Adams, a Democratic policy advisor for the state senate, $2.75 million.
Hobbs fired Adams, and Adams says it was due to her race.
“I think she’s always been very uncomfortable with minorities.”, said Talonya Adams.
in August 2019, Hobbs said “it is not true.” and “Discrimination didn’t happen.”
After Adams received her first favorable ruling and was awarded damages, Hobbs finally issued an apology saying, “I should have been a stronger ally”.

This was not enough for Adams. “I don’t need her to be my ally,” Adams said in the interview. “I need her not to discriminate against black people.”
Finally, today: Six years and two jury verdicts later, Hobbs issued a half-assed apology for her racism against a staffer.
“I understand my response fell short of taking real accountability”: 6 yrs & 2 jury verdicts later, Democratic candidate for governor @katiehobbs takes full responsibility for racial & sex discrimination case filed by fired staffer @TalonyaAdams. Will that quiet anti-Hobbs Dems? https://t.co/hFi5MKuhXu

Hobbs is virtue signaling now that she has been forced to apologize.
The worst part is that Hobbs couldn’t even bother to spell Ms. Talonya’s name correctly in her official statement.
While the left gets mad at Republicans who say Kamala Harris’ name incorrectly, they have no problem discriminating against blacks and even calling them the wrong name completely.

Democratic challenger Aaron Lieberman did it too.
Ok well it's not just Hobbs. @aaron4az has a hard time spelling Talonya's name too, getting it wrong in a press release announcing his plan to combat discrimination if elected governor. pic.twitter.com/DBmHxR3dK1

It appears Democrats do not care about black voters, only their votes.
Arizona Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Kari Lake called on Hobbs to step down from her role as Secretary of State after the recent court ruling was added to her track record of racism and bigotry.
Ms. Adams has called a public press conference to address the forced apology that Hobbs gave her.
She began her response to Hobbs saying
To be clear, I have not had a conversation with Kathleen “Katie” Hobbs since February 2015
Join me tomorrow!
