Jerry Kilgore/Virginia Attorney General We have said over and over again that burning the cross more than any other burning symbol brings intimidation to bear.

Burrow is accused of misrepresenting the Memorial's finances in order to get bank loans and state grants that helped complete the monument before its dedication in June of 2001.
Members of the foundation's board of directors testified today they knew nothing about the project's money troubles until it was already deep in debt.
They say Burrow maintained that outstanding pledges would make up for the shortfall. Most of those pledges never materialized.
The D-Day foundation is currently about four million dollars in debt and has sought bankruptcy protection.
