far right candidates in elections

Via Hatewatch

Lakes Wales, Florida has a new city commissioner, a former Grand Dragon for the KKK. Residents aren't, apparently, certain if his views on race have changed, but everyone wonders how no one noticed.

In Indiana's 2nd Congressional District, Tony Zirkle was defeated. Soundly. He came in third with 16% of the vote. How does a candidate attend a birthday party for Hitler to talk about the "porn dragon" and "porn mule womb slaughter," and then get 16% of the vote?

In other news, David Duke and others on the far right have endorsed Obama. Sort of. They think an Obama presidency might provoke a white backlash and race war.
