Did anyone question where Sen. Robert Byrd was at the time of the Holocaust Memorial Museum shooting today?
Being a former member of the KKK, it would be deemed appropriate.

Robert Byrd is the senior United States Senator from West Virginia, and a member and former Senate Leader of the Democratic Party. Byrd has been a Senator since January 3, 1959 and is the longest-serving member in the Senate's history. He is also the oldest current member of the United States Congress, and is the first politician in U.S. history to serve as a U.S. senator uninterrupted for half a century.
Byrd is President pro tempore of the United States Senate, a position that puts him third in the line of presidential succession, behind Vice President Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. He also held this post previously from 1989 to 1995, briefly in January 2001, and from June 2001 to January 2003. In this role, Sen. Byrd signs bills passed by Congress before they are sent to the president to be signed into law or vetoed.
Byrd holds a wide variation of both liberal and conservative political views. A lifelong Democrat, Byrd did not leave the party as its views shifted from social conservatism to social liberalism, as his views on race changed over time as well. He has also held many leadership positions: Senate Conference Secretary, Majority Whip and twice Majority Leader. He is the only former party leader currently in the Senate.Source(s): Fair & Balanced

I read some replies to this question and would like to say former kkk hell he still is kkk. West Virginia is the most racist state in america. Blacks still get beat for nothing and the beating is done by cops. West Virginia is the home of the skin heads. The shin heads have there own talk show on the radio in west virginia. Even CNN did a report in West Virginia about voting in the past election. They fly the Dixie Flag and most still don't recognize the American Flag. I personally think that he should be impeached................Its a fact West Virginia is one of the most corrupt states if not the most corrupt state in United States...

Yes, he is a former KKK member, but this tragic shooting should not be material for comedians.

That's a good idea. They did say the shooter was an old man. Maybe they got the wrong guy.
