It looks like the list of KKK members that dropped today, allegedly by Anonymous, isn’t from Anonymous at all.
Some of the names on that list – most notably Lexington, KY’s openly gay mayor, Jim Gray – were immediately suspicious (although, given the actual existence of Log Cabin Republicans, I suppose nothing is impossible).
Others, on the list, though – people like Sens. Thomas Tillis (R-NC) and John Cornyn (R-TX) – those are, shall we say, marginally less suspicious.
The real problem is this. In a better society, I ought to be able to look at a legislator’s voting record and know at a glance that he or she is innocent. Sadly, we can’t do that with yahoos like Tillis, can we?
I look forward to the real list and to the … constructive debate … that’s sure to follow.
