ABSTRACT
The article reports on potential presidential candidate and U.S. Senator George Allen's history of displaying the Confederate flag. Allen has long been notorious for a campaign commercial that showed the flag, but recent inquiries have revealed that he displayed the flag on his pick-up truck, in his dorm room and in his office. Fellow Republicans are disturbed by Allen's affinity for the flag, and some fear it will earn him votes in the South.
