Rep. Steve Scalise admitted to speaking at a meeting hosted by white nationalist leaders in 2002. The Louisiana lawmaker confirmed he attended a meeting organized by EURO (the European-American Unity and Rights Organization), which was founded by David Duke, former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, and is recognized by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group.

In a statement, Scalise’s spokesperson said he then was unaware of the group’s ideology and was speaking to promote his proposal on eliminating slush funds, adding: “He has never been affiliated with the abhorrent group in question. The hate-fueled ignorance and intolerance that group projects is in stark contradiction to what Mr. Scalise believes and practices as a father, a husband, and a devoted Catholic.” Read more at The Washington Post.

  1. But hosting Sharpton at the “White” House is not z problem! Having Farakhan speak to the congressional blac caucus
    is ok! The fact the Jews continue to vote for Democrats is pathetic!

  2. “The hate-fueled ignorance and intolerance that group projects is in stark contradiction to what Mr. Scalise believes and practices as a father…”

    That contradiction was not enough for him to stay away from that group. Throw the bum out!

  3. Not to long ago there was a sen. Robert byrd the love of the Democratic party who was at one time the grand wizard of the kkk. He never ever apologized for that period on his life! And the democrats never took him to task for it. So if you tell me this guy wore the robes is one thing but a speech abt the conservative party!!! Puleaze
