“Having previously met Representative Steve Scalise through our mutual connection of Louisiana politics, in light of revelations about his 2002 address to the European-American Unity and Rights Organization (EURO) – founded by ex-Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke – I believed it was critical to initiate a dialogue with the congressman to further determine whether any of EURO’s or Duke’s bigotry was indeed shared by our nation’s new House Majority Whip.
