Among the racial controversies that dogged U.S. Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith of Mississippi were photos of her taken during a visit to the historic home of Confederate President Jefferson Davis that she posted to Facebook with the comment that this represented "Mississippi history at it best!" In the photo on the right, she is posing with Greg Stewart, a neo-Confederate activist who was previously associated with Free Mississippi, which the Southern Poverty Law Center classified as a hate group. (Photos via Facebook.)
