Former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke running for Senate seat in Louisiana

Former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke announced his US Senate campaign Friday in Louisiana, promising to defend the rights of European Americans.

"Thousands of special interest groups stand up for African Americans, Mexican Americans, Jewish Americans, etc.," he said in a YouTube video. "The fact is that European Americans need at least one man in the United States, one man in Congress, who will defend their rights and heritage."

Duke, a former Republican congressman and convicted felon, said his emphasis on the rights of European Americans is what distinguishes him.

"I believe in equal rights for all and respect for all Americans. However what makes me different is I also demand respect for the rights and the heritage of European Americans," he said.

Republican Sen. David Vitter announced last year that he would not run for office again when his term was up at the end of this year.

"We must stop the massive immigration and ethnic cleansing of the people whose forefathers created America," Duke said in the message.

The former hate group leader said he popularized the "America First" slogan that Republican nominee Donald Trump has now embraced. <SNIP>

Good to see that Trump's campaign is encouraging like-minded people to run for higher office! :P

Damn straight! Someone needs to fight for all the down-trodden, deprived, cheated, disenfranchised white people. We never get a break.

Pity the poor white man. :sarcasm:

I saw this article from 2002

David Duke Pleads Guilty To Tax Charge And Fraud
Klan leader and politician who spent the last three years overseas preaching ''white survival,'' pleaded guilty today to bilking his supporters and cheating on his taxes.

Mr. Duke, 52, could be sentenced to up to 15 months in prison and $10,000 in fines under a plea bargain reached with federal prosecutors. He is free on bail until sentencing on March 19.

The plea to felony charges also disqualifies Mr. Duke from running for public office again.

He pleaded guilty to mail fraud and filing a false return shortly after the indictment was filed. The plea came two days after Mr. Duke returned to Louisiana from abroad to negotiate with prosecutors.

Is this legally true?

True-ish.

It is likely true with respect to a state office. But not true for a federal elected office.

I am sure the many upstanding citizens who saw Donald Trump as a viable candidate for President will have no problem overlooking a couple of felonies in their pursuit of "Making America White" again. :think:

Maybe The Donald can even start a super Pac to help raise money for his Senatorial run!

Funny coinkydink. Duke tweeted this out, using the image of model Romy van de Laar who works for Trump Models.

Tweets since been deleted.

And as far as the GOP "outrage" against Duke running, I can guarantee if he ends up as the top Republican vote getter, Preibus and the rest of the GOP will support him in the bat of an eye.

For Democrats, a Last Faint Hope to Gain a Senate Seat

That's the headline for NYTimes article on the Louisiana Senate seat still up for election. Foster Campbell is getting a lot of help from Dems across the country and across the spectrum of left-leaning voters desperate for one more Senator to caucus with the Dems. It's the math.

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/26/us/po ... pe=article
Still, Mr. Campbell does have one thing on his side: panicked urgency among Democrats nationwide.

“At this moment I don’t think it’s crazy to feel like our entire democratic institution is potentially under threat,” said David Skeits, 37, an actor in New York, who donated several hundred dollars to the Campbell campaign after reading about it on Facebook. Mr. Skeits knows that Mr. Campbell does not see eye to eye with him on some issues he considers important, like transgender rights or reproductive choice. But at the moment, Mr. Skeits is not alone in seeing full agreement as an unaffordable luxury.
Mr. Campbell spoke at the punk club rally of “over a million dollars” in donations, made and pledged to his campaign in just a few days. The money has been accompanied by offers of assistance, including from a group of dejected Clinton backers in Portland, Ore., who will be working the phones for Mr. Campbell in the coming days.

I think people feel pretty helpless,” said Susan Feldman, 68, who helped organize the Oregon group. “It’s sort of like, ‘Look, there’s still a little bit of something that we can do.’”

Yep. I donated.

John Kennedy's channel to victory was dredged and clear from the beginning of the Louisiana Senate race. All he had to do was stay the course.

He did that Saturday (Dec. 10), handily beating Democrat Foster Campbell in the runoff to succeed retiring Sen. David Vitter, R-La.

"Somebody once said winning isn't everything, and that's true, but it sure does feel good," Kennedy said from his victory party at the Embassy Suites in Baton Rouge.

A five-time elected state treasurer, Kennedy rode Louisiana's inexorable bend toward the Republican party and the popularity of President-elect Donald Trump to win the elected post he has coveted for much of his public career.

Kennedy, 65, will join an emboldened Republican Party in Washington. The GOP kept its majority in the House and control of the Senate -- Kennedy's addition increased that lead to 52-48. Trump, Vice President-elect Mike Pence and GOP congressional leaders have vowed to pursue an aggressive agenda on Day One.
