Montgomery, Al– Divisive Republican State Representative Will Dismukes (District 88) is receiving mounting criticism for his public support of the lost Confederate cause. As elected officials of all stripes seek to move Alabama forward, Dismukes is stuck in the past.
Rep. Dismukes, Chaplain of the “Prattville Dragoons: Sons of Confederate Veterans,” was recently praised in the group’s newsletter as being representative of the Confederacy’s “Godly heritage.”
“We need elected officials who work for a better tomorrow for all Alabamians,” said Wade Perry, Executive Director of Alabama Democratic Party. “That should go without saying. If little Will wants to play dress-up and pretend to fight for the lost cause, he should resign. His job is to pass laws that help Alabamians, not honor folks who fought to preserve the institution of slavery.”
Dismukes posted this picture (see attached) of himself in Confederate regalia, as he and his family celebrated “Confederate Flag Day” last March.
