Cooter Strikes Back at Markey

Former Rep. Ben "Cooter" Jones (D-GA) writes in the Boston Globe about being dis-invited to a fundraiser for Rep. Ed Markey's (D-MA) U.S. Senate campaign.

"It isn't every day that one makes preparations to go and play music for some friends but instead ends up being portrayed in the national press and on the Internet as some sort of antediluvian racist who should not be seen in the company of someone aspiring to the Senate. But that's what happened to me Tuesday."
