Senator Byrd was given a pass. So should Paula.
IIRC, “Sheets Byrd” actually used the N-word on the Senate floor or in some media interview once.
I was just traveling through Charleston, WV. Found a book in a local store that was an autographed copy of Byrd’s book. I looked at it and was estimating my chances of getting away with taking in the men’s room a giving it a good hosing down.
Senator Byrd was given a pass. AND Senator Byrd was given protection from the liberal MSM. THEY NEVER reported on his KKK past until they were put in the position of having to protect him from the right - cause WE outed him.
