Senator Chris McDaniel Distances Himself from Neo-Confederates

In a blog post by Geoff Pender over at The Clarion-Ledger late this afternoon, McDaniel took a defensive stance regarding his reported attendance at a Neo-Confederate event in August.

McDaniel claims to have been at an ALEC event in Chicago (a whole different issue) the weekend that his name was featured on a Rosin Heels conference invite chock full of radical speakers. But the Jones County Senator goes on to admit that he was definitely a speaker at a Rosin Heels meeting just weeks before.
