Update: The answer is Morris is on Mrs. Dees #6. iSteve commenter Harry Baldwin points out that Biography.com lists Morris’s first five wives as:

During his senior year of high school, Dees married Beverly Crum. The couple had two sons together before divorcing in the late 1960s. Dees next married Maureene Buck, a former employee. Dees and Buck had one daughter together. After they divorced, Dees married his third wife, Mary Farmer, the director of an abortion clinic. Following the end of his marriage to Farmer, he wed Elizabeth Breen. Dees’s fifth wife is Susan Star.

And to bring us up to date for those keeping score at home, from Michigan Radio NPR:

Why hate flourishes on the internet
By JACK LESSENBERRY • FEB 1, 2018

Online anonymity lets people say and do whatever they want without consequences.

Last night I had dinner with Morris Dees, the legendary founder and head of the Southern Poverty Law Center, the group that essentially put the Ku Klux Klan out of business. Not many people know this, but Dees is in Michigan fairly often these days.

He married Kathleen Kalahar, a high-powered Detroit lawyer, a year or so ago,

Morris was born in late 1936, so he was about 80 at the time. Here’s a photo of the happy couple, although the photographer incorrectly spelled the named “Katahar.” Ms. Kalahar is not a San from the Kalahari Desert, in case you were wondering. One commenter suggests it’s an alternative spelling of Gallagher/Kelleher.

and the couple split their time between Detroit and Alabama. You might say the definition of true love is voluntarily leaving Alabama to spend weeks in Detroit in January.

I’m guessing this is wife #5 and that Susan Starr, who was featured in that lifestyle feature in the local newspaper early in this decade, was #4. But it’s hard to find much online on this seemingly relevant topic of just how many Mrs. Morris Deeses there have been. With the SPLC making hazy accusations against Morris and various august journalistic institutions that have long partnered with the SPLC making inquiries gingerly, but nobody coming back yet with anything all that much more scandalous than Joe Biden’s behavior at a typical ribbon-cutting ceremony, you’d think that one basic fact — how often has Morris been legally married — would be easy to find on the Internet.

But it’s not.

In any case, Morris appears to be a genuine romantic, as measured in megabucks of alimony paid over the decades. Each time, he thinks to himself: This is the One.

So, your SPLC donations haven’t been wasted. You thought they were for fighting Hate. But, they’ve helped Morris pursue True Love.

iSteve commenter Cagey Beast adds:

I’m worried Mr. Sailer is slut-shaming Morris Dees and imposing his own puritanical sexual morality on someone from another culture. The only man qualified to judge Morris Dees is Jerry Lee Lewis. Thankfully (and remarkably) he is still alive.

Jerry Lee Lewis was born in 1935 and Morris Dees in 1936. This video is from 1957, about when Jerry got married for the third time, to his 13-year-old cousin once-removed. Others cousins of Jerry included country singer Mickey Gilley, who ran the world’s biggest nightclub outside Houston, and the Rev. Jimmy Swaggart, the TV preacher whose name sometimes comes up when I am trying to think of analogs for Morris.

  1. This article was written in such a mindless and unquestioning manner, that I had to look up the name of the writer to see if he really was as unintelligent as he came across in print.

    It turns out that the writer, Jack Lessenberry, was forced to resign from Michigan radio in May of 2018, three months after the above story was written. From a Michigan Radio story: “Lessenberry’s resignation comes as a growing number of women accuse him of sexual harassment and other questionable behavior.”

    Source: https://www.michiganradio.org/post/jack-lessenberry-resigning-michigan-radio-amid-harassment-allegations

    This also apparently led to him resigning his post as head of the Wayne State University’s journalism program.

    Here is what Lessenberry wrote regarding the SPLC’s shakedown tactics: “They won judgments against these groups, and then used the courts to seize their assets – buildings, land, whatever – in lieu of payment.” It’s scary that someone who celebrated the erosion of the First Amendment to this degree had anything to do with journalism in the first place.

    A shame that crank was taken out by this unworthy petard.
    Lessenberry was a sometimes bright guy who was genuinely useful in following Michigan politics, but he had a hilariously wide ideological blind spot, well before Stephen Colbert raising an eyebrow as a comment was a thing. His name in this connection raises two engrams which keep me from level three thetan:
    When the 2012-13 year of weekly government connected mass shootings was happening, amid huge, one-sided, and undisguised mainstream media nudging (which was totally not a coordinated thing at all), Lessenberry's contribution was to flatly assert that there ought not to be a right to concealed firearms for self-defense because nobody in the history of Wyatt Earp's nation had ever successfully defended themselves with a firearm. This was not a thesis defended with vigor but a parting shot thrown out in pure brainlessness. It wasn't totally original, either, it was a widely attested talking point, which the totally uncoordinated thought leaders clearly were supposed to either distribute less loudly than in an editorial column, or embellish somehow. Not Simple Jack.
    One of the unmourned victims of heroic witchfinding (I do not remember if this was SPLC per se, or ADL) were some farmers who lived in the middle of nowhere, who painted a big Nazi flag on their barn. It was invisible unless you drove out to ther property. Their property was seized, their childen taken.
    Do you think they no longer attribute viciousness and power to the Jews?

  3. Now, to be fair, repeat, TO BE FAIR, talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh has been married 4 times and divorced 3 times, with current wife (#4) roughly about 25 yrs younger. As a kid I used to wonder why a young(er) woman would even want to partner herself with a man in his 70s and 80s. Apparently Rush and Morris each have several million reasons as to why a woman would willingly partner herself with seniors.

    Oh, and President Trump’s wife, the current First Lady. Isn’t she about 24 yrs his junior as well?

    One difference is that Rush and Trump didn't make their millions by running a non-profit that allegedly carved out some moral high ground.

Following the end of his marriage to Farmer, he wed Elizabeth Breen. Dees’s fifth wife is Susan Starr.

    If this is true, Kathleen Kalahar is number six. According to divorce records available online, Dees had numerous affairs while married to Buck. The man’s a sexual dynamo!

    They must have had quite the dinner conversations. And from what we now know about his sex life, wife #3’s business might have come in quite handy at times. What a world.

  10. From your excerpt of Mr. Lessenberry:

    You might say the definition of true love is voluntarily leaving Alabama to spend weeks in Detroit in January.

    Is it really about the weather? It can get a bit nipply even down in Montgomery in January. I wonder if Jack Lessenberry had to stop himself here from thoughcriminality. Or, he doesn’t know how to do strike-through as well as some of us.

  11. Kalahar sounds like a variation of Gallagher.

    I’ve seen other variants like Kelleher (the local pronunciation where my paternal grandparents were from = Gellegher, and Kelleher doesn’t seem further than a hop, skip or jump) and Gulager (anyone recall the great scene in “The Last Picture Show” when Clu Gulager’s character schools the boss’s daughter – a stunning Cybille Shepherd ?)

    And Kathleen seals the connection.

  12. So long as the ex-wives were all just as HATEFUL of HATE as the guy they stole the money from, it’s all good. Don’t worry, donors. Indirectly, after just a few pairs of shoes, some dresses, and 5 re-modelings, well pretty much a badly-needed sprucing-up of an entire subdivision in Montgomery, what’s left will be used to stamp out the remaining private-sector members of the KKK.

  14. From 1991. Said he had 3 wives then.

    https://people.com/archive/morris-dees-vol-36-no-2/

    Once someone appeared on Christmas Eve, 1984, as Dees and his 14-year-old daughter, Ellie, decorated the tree. He grabbed his Beretta, handed Ellie a .22 and ordered his bodyguards over walkie-talkie to “shoot the motherf——-.” The man escaped.

    Now he rides with his 9 mm automatic stuck into his blue jeans. His third wife, Elizabeth Breen Dees, 35, keeps a riot gun on her side of the bed. In 1983 Dees’s office in downtown Montgomery was firebombed; since then, both it and Dees’s 250-acre ranch have been turned into fortresses.

  15. Springtime in Paris is fine right now, absolutely fine, and when I say “fine” I do mean that there are a certain amount of exploding apartment blocks, but these are just more “gas leaks” (remember all those European gas leaks?), and there’s absolutely nothing to tie them to Islam.

    In the 19th district of Paris on Saturday night, a large fire broke out in a six-storey residential building. According to eyewitnesses, the fire was preceded by an explosion. Currently, the flames engulfed the entire building, the fight against fire are about 50 firefighters.

  16. The new wife isn’t bad either for an octogenarian. Bezos is 25 years younger and at least 2 orders of magnitude richer, yet he only managed to score a mistress with maybe 2 points on Dees’ wife.

  17. I’m worried Mr. Sailer is slut-shaming Morris Dees and imposing his own puritanical sexual morality on someone from another culture. The only man qualified to judge Morris Dees is Jerry Lee Lewis. Thankfully (and remarkably) he is still alive.

    I’m not sure what to make of this. Did he meet Ms. Farmer in the course of utilizing her abortion services on his first couple of wives to keep the kid count down?

    Marrying your high school sweetheart is adorable, I think, and more guys should do this in my opinion. These days if you don’t grab them early the next chance you get is when they are about 37 years old and looking into IVF.

    Still isn't directly answering the question: For the most part, exactly WHY would a woman in her 20s/30s partner with a senior citizen, unless there are many $ reasons for it. Do not women like financial security? Answer: They do.

    Generally speaking, one doesn't find a young woman partnering up with a senior citizen working at Wal Mart as a greeter, or as a custodian working slightly above minimum wage. Why not? Can't they just as soon as find happiness with the senior working at Wal Mart as they can with the multi-mill/billionaire? After all, money can't buy happiness and money isn't everything. Isn't that correct? But, one doesn't see that situation occur very often in the real world.

    The point being, is that your case is an outlier and is not representative of 99.9% of US senior men.

    New stats coming out that state that each successive generation of US men (post-Baby Boom), has decreased levels of testosterone, and have to work even harder to maintain the economic level of their parents and grandparents. This certainly puts a damper on hooking up, specially since there's less to provide.

    From PJ Media:

    According to Biography.com, Dees has had five wives:

    During his senior year of high school, Dees married Beverly Crum. The couple had two sons together before divorcing in the late 1960s. Dees next married Maureene Buck, a former employee. Dees and Buck had one daughter together. After they divorced, Dees married his third wife, Mary Farmer, the director of an abortion clinic. Following the end of his marriage to Farmer, he wed Elizabeth Breen. Dees's fifth wife is Susan Starr.
     

    If this is true, Kathleen Kalahar is number six. According to divorce records available online, Dees had numerous affairs while married to Buck. The man's a sexual dynamo!

    After they divorced, Dees married his third wife, Mary Farmer, the director of an abortion clinic.

    They must have had quite the dinner conversations. And from what we now know about his sex life, wife #3’s business might have come in quite handy at times. What a world.

  29. A white women calling herself Kalahar is typical Khoisan-erasure, designed endear herself to the SPLC’s many Bantu-supremacist followers.

  30. After action report: Dees blew it by not having a succession plan. If Dees had contacted a Historically Black College about operating the post retirement SPLC he would have had a threat against usurpers. He would just activate the succession plan. After a comfortable 5 year to open ended transition period Dees would retire as CEO and become the director of the board of the SPLC and a trustee of the Historically Black college. He and Ms Dees #7, who would be able to pass the 1 drop test, would manage indirectly the boards of the SPLC and the Historically Black College.

    At this point I urge the Trump Admin to put into effect a plan to merge the SPLC with one or more HBCUs to endure the continuity of mission.

    He couldn’t retire for the same reason DoJ can’t allow a real investigation of their Insurance Policy.

    I like your plan very much. The only addition to it I would suggest, is that DJT surreptitiously arrange for that HBC to be one with a very strong Nation of Islam presence.
  31. In any case, Morris appears to be a genuine romantic, as measured in megabucks of alimony paid over the decades

    To be fair, it’s not like he’s actually ponying up the money, his vast array of suckers is. Maybe that right there is the entire genesis of the SPLC: Morris’ money migraines manufactured by matrimonial mismanagement.

    What many people don’t realise about South Africa is that the Dutch and the Bantus entered it about the same time.
    , @PV van der Byl
    Even parts of that Bantu (blue) expansion are also relatively recent in historical terms. The Bantu (today's South African blacks) had not reached the Great Fish River until around 1750. If you drew a vertical line down from the S in "Khoisan" to the southern African coast on that map, that is approximately where the Fish River is. That is also where they first ran into white settlers.

    My sister, 10 years older than I, married a man 24 years older than she. That's how I ended up having a brother-in-law who flew a P-38 in WWII.

    They were happy together.

    As many WW II bomber crews said, “There is nothing as great as a P-38.”

    Springtime in Paris is fine right now, absolutely fine, and when I say "fine" I do mean that there are a certain amount of exploding apartment blocks, but these are just more "gas leaks" (remember all those European gas leaks?), and there's absolutely nothing to tie them to Islam.

    In the 19th district of Paris on Saturday night, a large fire broke out in a six-storey residential building. According to eyewitnesses, the fire was preceded by an explosion. Currently, the flames engulfed the entire building, the fight against fire are about 50 firefighters.

    And the South African electricity supply is failing now, massively, regularly. When one goes third world, one goes third world.

    You mean a woman will marry a man for his money? I'm shocked.

    It's a continuum that runs from the examples you mention: Women being full-on prostitutes and trophies for old codgers...

    ... to the case I described: A woman in her twenties being genuinely attracted to a still-virile man in his fifties who does interesting, well-compensated-for things that most men can't do.

    In either case, and in between, it's about what the man can provide.

    The point being, is that your case is an outlier and is not representative of 99.9% of US senior men.

    New stats coming out that state that each successive generation of US men (post-Baby Boom), has decreased levels of testosterone, and have to work even harder to maintain the economic level of their parents and grandparents. This certainly puts a damper on hooking up, specially since there’s less to provide.

    I certainly agree with you about this.

    Those stats are correct. One can even suss this out just by watching younger men and so on. White men are on the way out, in an HBD, David Reich, "How We Got Here" sort of way. It is so weird that it almost seems like nature/God just wants this shit to happen.

    It is now a matter of "How We Are Disappearing," and if Reich's own DNA grand history is any indicator, white women are NOT movers and shakers of this. It is white men who are on the way out, but not white women. They will mix what whatever is next. Apparently that is how it always works.

    The X will continue, as it always does. Only the Y fights for its existence and pushes the boundaries -- thereby making any progress at all for "mankind."

    You are correct. Our host of this blog is a big noticer of things like this. I bet there are interesting conversations about this right now on his invitation-only HBD discussion group of scientists.

    I’m sure it’s all due to foie gras flatulence, thus from natives. This is the city that gave the world Le Petomane, remember.

    These people are recognized experts in Islamic law, and their word can be trusted:

    Foie Gras Can Hardly Be Halal

    Whatever you think of Morrie and his politics you have to admit the guy looks great for being north of 80. I hope I look half that good if I manage to live that long.

    Now, to be fair, repeat, TO BE FAIR, talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh has been married 4 times and divorced 3 times, with current wife (#4) roughly about 25 yrs younger. As a kid I used to wonder why a young(er) woman would even want to partner herself with a man in his 70s and 80s. Apparently Rush and Morris each have several million reasons as to why a woman would willingly partner herself with seniors.

    Oh, and President Trump's wife, the current First Lady. Isn't she about 24 yrs his junior as well?

    One difference is that Rush and Trump didn’t make their millions by running a non-profit that allegedly carved out some moral high ground.
