Nevada state House Speaker a Confederate sympathizer.

How does someone like this get elected to public office and then get promoted to a position of power like Speaker of the House?  This is the same state that keeps re-electing Harry Reid to the U.S. Senate, who is probably the most vitriolic member of Congress in either chamber.

For example, he wrote that he composes his columns beneath a Confederate flag, “in honor and in memory of a great cause and my brave ancestors who fought for that cause.” Hansen devoted columns published around the federal holiday honoring Martin Luther King, Jr. to attacking the civil rights leader, writing that “King’s private life was trashy at best…King Jr. is as low as it gets, a hypocrite, a liar, a phony, and a fraud.”
