QUESTION 12
INTERVIEWER:

WHAT ABOUT JOE RAUH?

Courtland Cox:

Joe Rauh played the role of the broker for the Democratic Party. I mean, he's always played that, he's that today. I mean Joe Rauh has not changed in umpteen years and plays, the, he likes to be the liberal. The Mr. Liberal, who, you know, in terms of liberal causes plays the broker between those who are victimized and those whom are victimizers. And I think that Joe Rauh, you know up to the point of, of the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party challenging a situation that Johnson began to hit back on was for the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party, raising all the philosophical issues. When the power of realities came, I think Joe like the rest of the people caved in.
