You all remember Virginia Foxx. She’s the class act who said Matthew Shepard’s murder was a hoax. Seriously:
this — the bill was named for him, hate crimes bill was named for him, but it’s really a hoax that that continues to be used as an excuse for passing these bills.
This year, Foxx has a Democratic opponent, Billy Kennedy. Pam’s hosting a chat with him tonight, which you can join here. Pam has a post with some background on Kennedy here.
