Race man?

Senator from Virginia George Allen introduced a bill harshing on the Senate for busting up anti-lynching laws early last century, but the bloggers are all afroth about Allen's history:

It's a laudable bill – but its author has anything but a laudable record on civil rights and racial issues. According to the Associated Press in 2000, Allen was discovered to have been displaying a hangman's noose and the confederate flag in his law office. As governor, Allen "signed a Confederate Heritage Month proclamation without denouncing slavery."

On the plus side, Allen will also draft a new proclamation praising the WB for its positive cultural impact. And hey, his website lists Thomas Jefferson as a political hero, so you know he can't be in favor of treating African Americans like slaves. The GOP's Revisionist History on Civil Rights
