I Spoke Too Soon....

A day after I mentioned (in Dallas Democratic Soap Opera, Continued) how a Republican candidate for judge a couple of decades ago appealed to unreconstructed racists by circulating a picture of his black opponent, the media report that they are still at it over there:
The Republican candidates include former prosecutor and misdemeanor judge Dan Wyde; former district judge, prosecutor and defense attorney Vic Cunningham; and Toby Shook, a DA's office supervisor.

...Cunningham and Shook said that Wyde offended minorities at forums by waving a blowup of his black Democratic opponent, defense attorney Craig Watkins. "It was obvious race baiting," Cunningham said. "Obviously, the tactics offended some people and he quit doing it after that," Shook said.
"Ils n'ont rien appris, ni rien oublié."
