Museum of the Sons of Confederate Veterans?

The Richmond Times-Dispatch is reporting that the Sons of Confederate Veterans would like to take control of operations of the Museum of the Confederacy:

Conditions at the museum have declined steadily for the past few years,” said Frank Earnest, state commander of the 4,000-member Virginia Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. “The current administration has brought the situation to near crisis.”  During a news conference today at the Confederate Memorial Chapel on Grove Avenue, Earnest said his group plans to meet with the museum’s board of trustees within a month to offer to take over the board and to discuss the replacement of the museum’s president and CEO, Waite Rawls.

I can see it now, special viewings of Gone With the Wind, Birth of a Nation, and Gods and Generals.
