Is Sen. George Allen a Confederate Sympathizer?
"The ad ran in the beginning of his campaign, when we were introducing him," says Allen's 1993 media consultant, Greg Stevens, who made the spot. Stevens denies that the flag was purposefully added to the scene, which lasts for ten seconds of the 60-second commercial, to appeal to pro-Confederate voters. "To be honest, this spot helped him enormously, and it had nothing to do with the Confederate flag," Stevens says, adding that any criticism about "a Confederate flag supposedly put there to subtly suggest to people that he is a Confederate" is "horseshit, and you can quote me on that."

Allen can have it both ways with whomever he is speaking to.
A neo-CSA'er with those sympathies and for others as a heritage marker as he states so elequently in the common venacular. The only way is to catch him writing for or quoted from neo-CSA sources like the CCC and accumulate data showing a pattern of sympathy if not support,however furitive,or else it will remain innuendo and be dismissed as anti-history hysteria.
