Strom Thurmond: Hypocrite and Liar -  

Stuart Benjamin has an interesting post over at the Volokh Conspiracy highlighting the fact that a 22 year old Strom Thurmond had a sexual relationship with a then 16 year old African-American woman who worked as a maid in his parents house. The relationship produced a child for whom Strom never cared but who's silence he bought by low grade financial support. The post 22 year old Strom built his political career, at least in part, on his belief in the unalloyed racial superiority of white folk and attempts to avoid the "mongrelization" of the races. The man shocks me even in death.
