Democrats urge Mississippians to chose disgraced former U.S. Secretary of Agriculture over Cindy Hyde-Smith

Jack Kemp

The internet is all abuzz over Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith's alleged racism to basically cover up the fact that the Democrat candidate running against her in a special election was forced to resign his position in the Clinton Administration. "Look, a squirrel!," the Democrats are yelling, as they claim to be without sin.

The conservative Blaze website states:

GOP Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith is once again under fire for a race-related issue, after the Jackson Free Press in Mississippi reported Friday that she graduated from a high school segregation academy.

What happened?

The newspaper published a photograph from the 1975 edition of the Lawrence County Academy yearbook that allegedly shows Hyde-Smith with a group of cheerleaders and a mascot with a Confederate flag. The caption identifies a sophomore student as Cindy Hyde...

Additionally,  a Facebook post this week showed Hyde-Smith in a photo wearing a Confederate soldier’s hat and holding a rifle. She wrote: "Mississippi history at its best!”

Gov. Phil Bryant appointed Hyde-Smith to fill retiring Republican Sen. Thad Cochran’s seat. She faces Democrat Mike Espy in a runoff election to determine who will serve the remainder of the term, which expires in January 2021.


So a Southern teenager made the choice - and paid the expenses - to go to a private academy all by herself? One would think this was the action of her parents in 1970s Mississippi. So what paragon of virtue is she running against in this special election. It is Democrat Mike Espy. Mike Espy was a Secretary of Agriculture in the Clinton Administration who was forced to resign for alleged improper gifts from Tyson foods of Arkansas.

In 2006, I broke news about Mr. Espy in an American Thinker piece
concerning Espy's being named to the board of Alternative Energy Sources, a startup ethanol producer.

As I also stated then, according to Yahoo Finance (unfortunately, the old link doesn't work),


Alternative Energy Resources has no profits, no revenue, cash of $8.75 million, and a share price of $1.10 as of Dec. 26, 2006. The company, founded in 2006, hopes to build ethanol plants, according to its Yahoo Finance Profile.

You can read more details of Mr. Espy's questionable activities and connections with other Democrat "environmental company" dealings here.

So, Mississippi voters, who is more fit to win this special election, a GOP woman proud of her Southern heratage or a Democrat who was forced to resign as Secretary of Agriculture back in the Bill Clinton Administration? The choice is yours - but I would advise you not to buy into this Democrat attempt at virtue signaling. As the old saying goes, don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good. Cindy Hyde-Smith has never been forced to resign from national office for good reasons.
