Poll time! Who said this terrible thing?

The Extra Buzz on thefrederickextra.rocks.com has us all atwitter this evening. There is a report of an overheard conversation of one of our esteemed county council members. Take a little peek:

Overheard at a recent government-style gathering [paraphrased]: Civilian to County Council Member: I might like to live on a farm someday. What’s that like? CCMember: Sharecropping went out about 100 years ago [actually, it’s more like 60.] The civilian was black.

There really are only two choices.
It’s not who you think!

This mystery calls for a poll! Who do you think said this terrible thing?
