Geraldine Ferraro Leaves Clinton Finance Committee: She Doesn't Regret Anything. The Clintons Didn't Ask Her To Leave.

That is key. Hillary Clinton effectively did nothing about this. She let it fester, giving tacit approval via inaction.

Geraldine Ferraro has stepped down from her role as a member of Hillary Clinton's finance committee.

In a letter to Clinton obtained by CNN's Suzanne Malveaux — who spoke with the former vice presidential candidate shortly after she sent it to Clinton — Ferraro said she is stepping down so, "I can speak for myself and you can continue to speak for yourself about what is at stake in this campaign."

In a phone conversation with Malveaux, Ferraro said she was not asked to step down by Senator Clinton or her campaign.

Ferraro said thousands of people are part of the finance committee, saying it is not a staff position, but a voluntary one for those who raise money for the campaign. She also said she has raised $125,000 for Senator Clinton.

When asked if she had any regrets about what she said, Ferraro replied, "absolutely not."

Ferraro moves on to look for more uppity blacks who don't know their place.
