I noticed in today's election returns that Keith Ellison managed to win a seat to Congress from Minnesota's delegation. The results are here.
The bit of controversy on Ellison has to do with his past possible affiliation with (or at least soft spot for) the Nation of Islam. Details on some of his past ties can be found in various places, like this Minnesota Public Radio story.
This reminded me of a bookmark I saved on del.icio.us quite some time ago: Louis Farrakhan's address at the Million Man March. Read it, it's hilarious.
