This kind of thing isn’t new in politics or in Clayton County.
A campaign flier is being circulated that accuses a white county commission candidate of being racially insensitive to African-Americans.
The glossy flier urges voters to support Lee Scott, an African-American, but does not identify his white opponent, Michael Edmondson, by name. The flier says Scott’s “challenger” was the “grand master” of a July Fourth parade in Jonesboro and “marched and paraded under the Confederate flag. …”
“We don’t need anyone like this representing us,” the flier said.
At the bottom of the flier is picture of Edmondson’s head superimposed on the Rebel flag. Underneath, it reads “The Confederate Flag man?” Beside Edmondson’s photo is a picture of Lee Scott, with his name underneath.
