Keep New Times Free

Lake Worth Liberals Smear Scott Maxwell With His Own Words

In the video above, which was posted to Youtube today, you can hear Lake Worth City Commission candidate Scott Maxwell on his own radio show. The audio leaves little doubt that on immigration, he lines up to the right of Lou Dobbs. By the sound of it, he's getting mighty close to Minuteman territory. If you listen to the end you'll hear Maxwell basically excuse police who engage in racial profiling. He also refers to Congress as "535 fools on the Hill," suggesting he's to the right of all them, too.

So it does seem a tad excessive for Maxwell's opponents to be laboring to push him even further right in the eyes of voters by linking him to racial hate groups, a connection which he denied in an interview with Juice this morning. He is indisputably extremely conservative -- isn't that enough?
