MONTGOMERY, Ala. - A Republican candidate for the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals -- Cullman County District Judge Terri Willingham Thomas -- was recently photographed at a meeting of the Council of Conservative Citizens.
The council is considered a racist organization by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Thomas says she doesn't know anything about the organization.
She says she attended the council meeting in Cullman to hear a lesson on Confederate General Robert E- Lee.
Heidi Beirich, who helps track hate groups for the Montgomery-based Southern Poverty Law Center, says the council's racist views have been widely reported.
Thomas faces Democrat Jim McFerrin in the general election November seventh.
