Synopsis from The Nation 9/11/06 article about George Allen and the white separatist Council of Conservative Citizens:

"Virginia Senator George Allen claimed it was a 'mistake' when he called an employee of his Democratic foe a racist name.

"But the leader of America's top racist group explains Allen's long and cozy history with white supremacists."
