Former Congressman Tancredo to Address White Supremacists UPDATED
Yesterday Hatewatch reported that Tom Tancredo was to speak at a white supremacist group, Council of Conservative Citizens, meeting. Today his team america PAC responded to their request for comment.
Editor’s Note: On Wednesday — a day after failing to respond to Hatewatch’s request for comment — former congressman Tom Tancredo’s Team America PAC wrote Hatewatch to say, “Tom Tancredo is not speaking at the Council of Conservative Citizens” (CCC). The unsigned email did not say if Tancredo had withdrawn from the speaking engagement after receiving widespread criticism or had never agreed to speak. Hatewatch has in its possession a hard copy of the CCC newsletter, The Council Reporter, dated Spring 2012. Its front page article, about the CCC’s upcoming national conference, says, “This year’s conference features former Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO) as the Saturday luncheon speaker” and features a color photo of Tancredo.
