If Virginia voters have forgotten about George Allen's "macaca" gaffe, a labor group is out to remind them.
Workers' Voice, a super PAC with ties to the AFL-CIO, released a series of Internet ads today aimed at highlighting some race-related incidents tied to the Republican.
Allen is trying to win back the U.S. Senate seat he lost six years ago, when he was caught on video calling a young man of Indian descent "macaca." It's a derogatory word that can mean monkey in some countries.
"George Allen kept a noose and a Confederate flag in his office and anyone who would insult the African-American and Latino people of Virginia this way is not fit to hold office," said Eddie Vale, communications director for Workers' Voice. "This is similar to, but even more offensive, than Mitt Romney secretly attacking 47% of all Americans."
