As we wait for Rep. Moore to resume his assault on public education in Mississippi at today's House Education Committee meeting, here are more fun facts from Rep. Moore's past for your reading pleasure.
Back in its Fall 2004 Intelligence Report, the Southern Poverty Law Center mentioned Rep. Moore's name among other notable Mississippi Republicans who enjoyed a close relationship with the Council of Conservative Citizens, a white supremacist organization formerly headed by Richard Barrett.
Apparently, Barrett and Moore's relationship was a very close one as Moore was named a beneficiary in Barrett's will (alongside the Government of Iran). To read more about Barrett and the Council of Conservative Citizens, check here and here.
Assuming Rep. Moore is successful in his efforts to dismantle Mississippi's K-12 program, it'll be interesting to see what he and the CCC come up with as a replacement.
