George Allen will be in Portsmouth Today with Mayor Holley

Senator George Allen will be in Portsmouth today holding a press conference with Portsmouth's Independent Mayor James Holley at 1:00 pm.

Portsmouth's controversial mayor had to leave office years ago for sending racist hate mail to black leaders in Portsmouth. Amazingly enough James Holley is African American. He has since returned to office in his old positin.

This is a surprising development because Mayor Holley actually joined Mayors for Peace and it appears this is probably a press conference where Holley will endorse Allen for Senate?

Since when was Allen for Peace?

It looks like James Holley is back to playing dirty politics again.

There were a few blacks at the McCain rally for Allen (outside of the ministers, of course). One was James Holly.

I keep thinking of the late, great Martin Luther King and the "conversation" I imagine he would have with these ministers who are twisiting the history of fighting for civil rights that the black churches once's so hard to imagine that some black churches today are encouraging that discrimination against a group of people be written into a constitution.

I know Coretta Scott King endorses LGBT rights and she stated that Martin Luther King would have never led a movement to discriminate against others.

It just seems ....
