I heard this statement on C-SPAN, given in recognition of Sen. Byrd's (D-W.Va) 17,000th congressional vote, but I missed the name of the Senator who made it, and was not able to find any mention of it anywhere until it was reported on Special Report this evening. The statement was made by Sen. Dodd (D-Conn.) on the Senate floor: Sen. Byrd was a Klansmen. Sen. Byrd also fillibustered against Civil Rights. Just as Strom Thurmond (R-Miss.) did, and I think everyone remembers the uproar that followed Trent Lott's (R-Miss.) statements concerning Strom Thurmond on the occasion of Sen. Thurmond's 100th birthday, both in the media and among prominent Democrats. Where's the uproar this time? I'm not holding my breath.
