The Buck Stops There

According to The Austin Chronicle, Rep. Warren Chisum has apologized to Jewish groups for circulating a memo calling evolution a kabbalah conspiracy. Evidence for the conspiracy came from an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory Web site

Chisum, who sent the memo to other legislators with a cover letter saying he thanked Georgia Rep. Ben Bridges for sending "information on this important topic," now says he was just being a "Good Samaritan" by circulating a memo sent to him by Bridges

Chisum says he hadn't looked at the Web site. Bridges denies writing the memo.

Bridges says Marshall Hall, the husband of Bridges campaign manager, Bonnie Hall, wrote the memo and sent it out without asking him.

Hall says that just because he calls evolution a Jewish conspiracy doesn't mean he's anti-Semitic.

Heck no.
