Jim Moran on Bob McDonnell’s Omissions of Slavery: “Of course it was intentional”

Rep. Jim Moran (D-8th) says:

Of course it was intentional. The last two predecessors, who were Democrats, didn’t issue such a proclamation. The previous governor did, but he offered slavery as something that we should not be proud of. This guy doesn’t mention slavery because he doesn’t want to imply that he’s not proud of it.

UPDATE: More from Jim Moran (and Doug Wilder) on Confederate History Month after the “flip.”
