Sen. George Allen, R-Va., answers questions about his Jewish heritage during an interview at the offices of the Associated Press Monday, Sept. 25, 2006, in Richmond, Va. Allen also denied the allegations of racism made against him which appeared in a recent magazine article.
Sen. George Allen (news, bio, voting record) on Monday denounced as “ludicrously false” allegations from a former college football teammate that he frequently used a racial slur to refer to blacks in the early 1970s and that he once stuffed a severed deer head into a black household’s mailbox.
Allen’s campaign also released statements from four other ex-teammates defending the senator and rejecting Dr. Ken Shelton’s claims. Shelton leveled the allegations against the former University of Virginia quarterback in an article published Sunday in the online magazine Salon.com and during an Associated Press interview Sunday night.
“The story and his comments and assertions in there are completely false,” Allen said during an interview with AP reporters and editors. “I don’t remember ever using that word and it is absolutely false that that was ever part of my vocabulary.”
Larry J. Sabato, one of Virginia’s most-quoted political science professors and a classmate of Allen’s in the early 1970s, said in a televised interview Monday that Allen used the epithet.
“I’m simply going to stay with what I know is the case and the fact is he did use the n-word, whether he’s denying it or not,” Sabato, now director of the University of Virginia Center for Politics, told Chris Matthews on MSNBC. Sabato would not say whether he had heard Allen say the word, and did not know whether it was true that Allen used the word frequently in college.
Flap has used the N-Word. And he is NOT proud of it. Alot of folks have said this epithet/slur either out of frustration, anger or stupidity. However, Flap has NEVER cut off the head of an animal and stuffed it into a mailbox of some black folks – nor has he been falsely accused of such a stunt.
Flap warned that during the Macaca FLAP, Senator Allen appeared unbalanced and angry.
On the other hand, James Webb has FRAUDULENTLY used President Reagan’s likeness in political ads. He, in fact, has LIED – implying the dead President has endorsed his candidacy.
If it were up to Flap, he would disqualify both of these MORONS and select two new candidates who could BETTER address the issues upon which Virginians demand of a United States Senator.
