Clyburn Receives Racist Faxes With Nooses

Things get ugly for the House Democratic whip in the wake of the health care bill.

First, protestors dropped the N-bomb as members of the Congressional Black Caucus made their way to the Capitol. Then they hurled spit. So it seems fitting that the latest racially offensive assault on black lawmakers who backed health care reform involves a noose. Are attack dogs and fire hoses up next?  

House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) received racist faxes Monday in the wake of Sunday's House vote approving health care reform legislation.

Clyburn, a veteran of the civil rights movement, told Keith Olbermann Monday that faxes sent to his office had racist images including a noose.
"If you look at some of the faxes that I got today, racial slurs, nooses on gallows, and I'm telling you, some very vicious language. This
stuff is not all that isolated. It's pretty widespread. I hope it's not too deep."
