RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2020.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Lott

Chester Trent Lott, Sr. is a former Dixiecrat-turned Republican Senate Majority Leader from Mississippi.

In the early 1960's Lott successfully led a campaign to keep blacks from joining his fraternity at not only the University of Mississippi but its national chapters as well.[1] In 2002 Lott issued an apology after receiving criticism for a statement in which he appeared to support the segregationist position held by Strom Thurmond during the latter's 1948 presidential bid.[2]

Lott unexpectedly retired after 35 years in Congress in 2007 at the age of 66. He's since reappeared as a lobbyist for a sanctioned company.[3]
