Hillary Clinton refers to Ku Klux Klan leader as “my friend and mentor”
In 2005, the Washington Post reported:
… a politically ambitious butcher from West Virginia named Bob Byrd recruited 150 of his friends and associates to form a chapter of the Ku Klux Klan. After Byrd had collected the $10 joining fee and $3 charge for a robe and hood from every applicant, the “Grand Dragon” for the mid-Atlantic states came down to tiny Crab Orchard, W.Va., to officially organize the chapter.
In 2010, Clinton referred to Byrd as
“my friend and mentor”
