Candidacy embarrassing


I read the article about state Sen. John Smith, 7th District, and I was shocked. In the July 14 article, Smith admits to getting married in a white supremacy church, and he also admits to having white supremacy relatives.

There is no room in today’s America for politicians with white supremacy ties. And I can’t understand how the Republican Party, or any other party for that matter, could support or endorse a politician associated with hate groups. This is absolutely embarrassing to the Republican Party, the Senate seat once occupied by Bob Morton and to Eastern Washington.
