Does This Man Pass the Scott Brown Test?


Now just this evening I learned from TPM Reader BG that the late Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens was a member of the Chinook tribe ...

It's not generally known that recently-murdered Amb. Chris Stevens was a full, registered Chinook. A great many Chinooks here in the NW can "pass" as white. You can verify this by checking w/ the Chinook Tribe.

It turns out there was no need to confirm since you can easily find the statement released by Chinook Tribal Chairman Ray Gardner mourning Stevens' loss.

So, does Chris Stevens meet Brown's 'know one when I see one' test?
