Pro-Eugenics Candidate Running for Congress Again

A Republican candidate for Congress in 2004, repudiated by the GOP for his support of eugenics and talk of “favored races,” has again made it onto the ballot in Tennessee. But evidently not for long. James L. Hart, 62, who marched with Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, will be the subject of a Republican Executive Committee meeting March 25 for a vote on whether he is a “bonafide Republican,” or should be stricken from the ballot in Tennessee’s Eighth Congressional District. Hart won 8,227 votes in the Republican primary election in 2004 and went on to collect 59,853 votes in the general election won by incumbent Rep. John Tanner, D-Tenn., with 173,623 votes.

This
guy won’t do anything to help the Republican party’s reputation as being the
“rich white guy” party. I’d like to see him debate Alan Keyes.
