Horton, Stewart, and Lee

Star Tribune story about a defamatory website:

Yet after he was elected last week, the public learned that while campaigning hard for himself and other DFL candidates, the African-American candidate also helped concoct one of the most racially charged political attacks since Willie Horton. Stewart and some friends designed a website that mimicked Fifth District Independence Party House candidate Tammy Lee's real website. The quotes and links to the Ku Klux Klan and David Duke made it appear as though Lee was running on a "white power" platform.

Me: Willie Horton was a real criminal who was let out on furlough. The website was fake and defamatory. No comparison.
