Incoming House Majority Whip, Steve Scalise (R-LA)

House Majority Whip Confesses to Speaking at White Nationalist Conference

12.30.2014

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) has admitted that he delivered a speech to a so-called "white rights" conference in 2002, held by an organization known as EURO, headed by the neo-Nazi leader David Duke. Scalise has also insisted that he shares American society’s abhorrence of such “hate groups" -- and that he did not know what kind of group he was talking to.  He is asking the public to believe that he did not notice any of the virulent racist and anti-Semitic talk by the Klansmen, neo-Nazis, and assorted white nationalists in attendance at this gathering.
