George Althouse (1896 – November 22, 1981) was a Republican politician from Omaha who served in the Unicameral Nebraska Legislature in 1970. Appointed by Gov. Norbert Tiemann after the death of Sen. Edward Danner, Althouse created controversy when, in a floor speech in the Legislature, he said "If it is [God's] plan that the white man be in command, there is nothing we can do about it, so let's all join up and work together." Althouse's opponent in the 1970 election, Ernie Chambers, would often cite this speech as a motivating factor behind his candidacy. Althouse lost to Chambers in the 1970 election.
