Oh, Republican governors! When they’re not losing track of the one Latina they hired, they’re digging up a Latino white supremacist to serve on their reelection committees. Governor Nikki Haley (R-SC) has come under fire this week after the Southern Poverty Law Center noticed that one member of her “Grassroots Steering Committee,” Roan Garcia-Quintana, is a board member of the Council of Conservative Citizens, which SPLC calls a “white nationalist hate group.”

MSNBC’s Rev. Al Sharpton reported on Gov. Hayley’s pal on last night’s PoliticsNation, citing the SPLC, which, when convenient, conservatives falsely label as partisan. However, even the Anti-Defamation League calls the CofCC a “white suprema­cist” organization:

Garcia-Quintana, a direc­tor of the white suprema­cist Coun­cil of Con­ser­v­a­tive Cit­i­zens (CofCC), is closely tied to anti-immigrant orga­ni­za­tions in the United States.
Garcia-Quintana is a well-known leader in the CofCC, a group descended from the White Cit­i­zens Coun­cils, which opposed deseg­re­ga­tion of schools dur­ing the Civil Rights era.
