  • Pima County Supervisor Ally Miller may have been too busy inspecting potholes to stop by the Board of Supes meeting today.
Pima County Supervisor Ally Miller, who made the news last week when she declared her "white pride" on Facebook after would-be Nazis marched in Charlottesville and killed one counter-protester (along with injuring others), decided to skip today's Board of Supervisors meeting.

Miller dashed off an email at 6:13 a.m. this morning letting county officials know she was unavailable for the meeting.

"I am sending this to notify you that I will be unable to cal (sic) in to today's board meeting: August 21, 2017," Miller wrote in her brief message. "Please notify the Chair."

Miller was expected to get roasted during the Call to the Audience segment of the meeting after her Facebook comments earned widespread condemnation outside of her immediate circle of flying monkeys.

"I'm sick and tired of being hit for being white... It is all about making us feel like we need to apologize," Miller wrote in response to a post about Charlottesville on political gadfly's Shaun McClusky's Facebook page. "I am WHITE—and proud of it! No apologies necessary."

Where is the pride this morning?
