Klansman, Republican, what's the difference?

The "newspaper of record" just misidentified a Republican politician as a Klansman.

Thursday's New York Times misidentified GOP Senate candidate Pete Coors as a Ku Klux Klan member who murdered a black sharecropper.

The Coors campaign found the error "so outrageous it's kind of funny," said spokeswoman Cinamon Watson.
