Who is Elbert Guillory? A tool of limousine conservatives, that's who

Many have remarked on the brutal attack ad during the Razorback game last night by Elbert Guillory and his Free at Last PAC.

Guillory is a Republican-turned Democrat-turned Republican who serves in the Louisiana Senate and is a darling of conservatives for his attacks on Democrats. As the Washington Post reports, he hasn't brought many black voters with him.

He's taped such ads — paid by a PAC funded by a variety of conservative believers — against Kay Hagan in North Carolina, Mary Landrieu in Louisiana and now Mark Pryor in Arkansas. Guillory says blacks are tools of "limousine liberals." Could be he's a tool of limousine conservatives like Rush Limbaugh, who along with Fox News' Neil Cavuto, is among his admirers. 

Four times divorced and backer of a Louisiana law meant to put religion in science classrooms (he talked of a good experience with a faith healer), Guillory has a colorful history.

A Louisiana outlet reported on the Free at Last PAC's roots. A white conservative Family Forum activist was the driving force.

Open Secrets gives the financial numbers. The PAC in the latest cycle hasn't spent a dime advancing the cause of black Republicans, claimed as a goal at its founding. It has spent every dime to defeat white Democrats who enjoy strong black support
