McDaniel told the Clarion-Ledger political editor Geoff Pender, however, that he never attended the ball and was at a meeting of the ALEC at the time.
What'd McDaniel say?
State Sen. Chris McDaniel says he wasn’t at a “neo-Confederate” conference and ball that “Mother Jones” is reporting he attended and addressed.“It’s unbelievable,” McDaniel said. “I was in Chicago then, at an (ALEC) conference. I wasn’t even there. I wasn’t even in the state.”
Evidently McDaniel believes that the extremist ALEC is a more appropriate association for a US Senate candidate than the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV), the Jones County Rosin Heels.
He felt he had to clarify where he was.
