Specter & Lott

I had forgotten that Specter had defended Lott during the Strom fury. From the 2004 Almanac of American Politics:

Specter was one moderate who stood by Trent Lott after his comments at Strom Thurmond’s 100th birthday party December 5, 2002. On December 11 he said, “I know Trent Lott very well from working with him in the Senate for the last 14 years and can vouch for the inadvertent slip and and his apology should end the discussion.”

(Just trivia…)
