HONEST MISTAKE? Boston Mayor Michelle Wu Defends 'Electeds of Color' Holiday Party

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.14.23

Boston Mayor Michelle Wu is in hot water after an invitation for an ‘electeds of color’ holiday party went viral; she says it was an ‘honest mistake.’

“We had individual conversations with everyone so people understand that it was truly just an honest mistake that went out in typing the email field,” Wu told reporters.

Boston’s City Council is comprised of six minority and seven white members.

From The New York Post:

Wu, Boston’s first female of color and Asian American mayor, came under fire when her director of City Council relations, Denise DosSantos, sent an exclusive party invitation to all members of the City Council instead of just the select invitees.

All of the white members had their invitations rescinded about 15 minutes after the original email was sent.

“I wanted to apologize for my previous email regarding a Holiday Party for tomorrow,” DosSantos wrote in her follow-up. “I did send that to everyone by accident, and I apologize if my email may have offended or came across as so. Sorry for any confusion this may have caused.”

Wu justified Wednesday’s party claiming it had become sort of a yearly custom over the past decade, where members of the “diverse” group take turns hosting the party.

“I’ve been a part of a group that gathers, representing elected officials of color across all different levels of government in Massachusetts,” Wu said, according to WCVB. “A group that has been in place for more than a decade, and the opportunity to create a space for people to celebrate and rotate who hosts.”

“Mayor Wu is NOT dreaming of a white Christmas. And she will NOT be serving white wine tonight. Or white-meat chicken. No palefaces invited to Parkman House powwow!” New England radio host Howie Carr quipped on X.

“So in Boston, you can’t attend the mayor’s holiday party if you are white. How much longer are Americans going to tolerate this left-wing racist crap?” conservative X user Rod Dreher wrote.
