A Bloomberg writer named Francis Wilkinson wrote an article claiming that the Republican Senator Tim Scott from South Carolina only became a senator because Republicans “lowered the bar” for his appointment because he was black.
In the article by Wilkinson, he described Senator Scott as a do-nothing senator. He said Scott acted like a “shield” for racist, Confederate flag-waving Tea Party members who need someone to replace Herman Cain as the favorite candidate behind whom they can hide their racism.

The liberal writer from Bloomberg could not grasp the fact that that Rep. Tim Scott was made senator because of who he was and insists that he won because ‘white tea party racists’ voted for him because he was black.
Wilkinson says he made these assessments because Scott didn’t get a Tea Party challenger even as so many other incumbents across the country did.
But the writer answered his own question saying, “Scott placed himself so far to the right that there was no space for a Tea Party challenge on ideological grounds,” Wilkinson wrote.
Wilkinson furthered his rant saying that Scott “has an ‘F’ on the NAACP legislative scorecard” and a high score on the “right-wing Heritage Action scorecard–94 out of a possible 100.”
