How soon is too soon to politicize the death of actor and comedian Robin Williams? Tonight was definitely not the night, a lesson apparently not learned by Republican Party of Minnesota deputy chair Chris Fields. Bluestem Prairie explains how Williams’ death led to a political Twitter war between Fields and Ellen C. Anderson, social media director of the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party.

Anderson tweeted a tribute to Robin Williams from her personal account.


Innocent enough, right?

This might be a good time to stop digging.

Editor’s note: The text of this post originally referred to Fields as Minnesota State GOP secretary. Fields no longer serves as secretary; he is the state party’s deputy chair. The post has been amended accordingly.
