Who is Elbert Guillory? A tool of limousine conservatives, that's who

Posted By on Sun, Nov 2, 2014 at 9:04 AM


Many have remarked on the brutal attack ad during the Razorback game last night by Elbert Guillory and his Free at Last PAC.

Guillory is a Republican-turned Democrat-turned Republican who serves in the Louisiana Senate and is a darling of conservatives for his attacks on Democrats. As the Washington Post reports, he hasn't brought many black voters with him.

He's taped such ads — paid by a PAC funded by a variety of conservative believers — against Kay Hagan in North Carolina, Mary Landrieu in Louisiana and now Mark Pryor in Arkansas. Guillory says blacks are tools of "limousine liberals." Could be he's a tool of limousine conservatives like Rush Limbaugh, who along with Fox News' Neil Cavuto, is among his admirers. 

Four times divorced and backer of a Louisiana law meant to put religion in science classrooms (he talked of a good experience with a faith healer), Guillory has a colorful history.

A Louisiana outlet reported on the Free at Last PAC's roots. A white conservative Family Forum activist was the driving force.

Open Secrets gives the financial numbers. The PAC in the latest cycle hasn't spent a dime advancing the cause of black Republicans, claimed as a goal at its founding. It has spent every dime to defeat white Democrats who enjoy strong black support
