Not good! Official CPAC mobile app can’t tell convention’s only two black featured speakers apart

There are only two! (Maybe in the entire party?) Raw Story explains…

There will only be two African-American featured speakers at this year’s Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) conference, but the group’s official mobile app has still managed to confuse them.

The Washington Post‘s Ben Terris tweeted this image this morning:

not ben carson.

Somehow, an image of South Carolina Senator Tim Scott was appended to the biography of the potential Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson. The image is correct, however, on the organization’s website.

Other speakers at this year’s CPAC conference include most of the potential GOP nominees for the 2016 election, including former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, Florida Senator Marco Rubio, Donald Trump, and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.

The conference begins today with an “activist boot camp.”
