Says noted school-choice advocate George Mitchell about former Democratic State Rep. Annette “Polly” Williams:

“Polly was useful to the school choice movement because of her race and her party affiliation,” Mitchell wrote of Williams, who is black and a Democrat.

While I find George Mitchell’s comments and attitude towards Polly Williams to be loathsome, I do appreciate the fact that Mitchell is finally publicly articulating one of the worst-kept secrets around, that being the fact that school choice advocates like Mitchell, Scott Jensen, etc. have essentially used African-American legislators like Williams and others as nothing more than tools to further their agenda.

One Response to George Mitchell lets the cat out of the bag

  1. John Casper says:

    Thanks Zach. Given his affiliation with the Hoover Institute http://www.hoover.org , I’m not in the least bit surprised that Mr. Mitchell is steeped in refined and well-educated white-supremacist tactics.

    Shame on Stanford for letting the Hoover Institute on campus.
