Allen Back in Hot Water

The Washington Post reports that former Sen. George Allen (R-VA), who is looking to reclaim his old seat in 2012, has found himself in hot water after he asked NBC 4 reporter-anchor Craig Melvin, a tall African American, which position he played. The problem? Melvin never played a sport.

The incident is reminiscent of 2006, when Allen originally lost his Senate seat after using the slur "macaca" to refer to a rival campaign staffer.
