With all the “prayers” going out to him and his family and people like Mike Castle heaping laurels on his head, I just have to share a story about Jim Vaughn.

An African American Deputy was filling in for a superior at a meeting with Vaughn held in Leg. Hall.

Vaughn was a few minutes late. He walked into the meeting room and turned around and walked right back out. A white subordinate chased after Vaughn and said, “is there a problem Senator?”

To which he replied, “I’m not meeting with some nigger.”

It was not in 1950. It wasn’t even ten years ago.
