Jackson Co. GOP chair linked to "white rights" group

Posted By on Mon, Jan 31, 2011 at 9:24 AM

Spurred on by the discovery of a racist Craig's List ad, the writers over at Blue Arkansas have found a link between the Council of Conservative Citizens (formerly the White Citizens' Council, a group that "has been protecting and advancing the interests of European-Americans for over 20 years" and "the only serious nationwide activist group that sticks up for white rights!") and Jackson County Republican Chairman John Casteel. The email contact for the CofCC in Arkansas is the exact same one listed on the Jackson County Republicans website for Casteel. A call to the telephone number listed on the Jackson County site rings the office of Casteel Insurance. No one was available to speak when we called this morning. Check out Blue Arkansas for the full story, complete with screenshots more background info.
