I believe Senator Lott was referring to fellow colleague Strom Thurmond of SC when he said he's "always been right." The ultimate irony on Thurmond's segregationist past is that his estate has finally acknowledged his black daughter from an interracial tryst of his some years ago.

I wasn't aware that Robert Byrd had any associations with the KKK by the way. Is this a fact?
