    12 year old event.
    Nothing in his Congressional record indicates he is a racist.

    Seems to me nothing but mud slinging.

    Except He voted against making MLK day a national holiday. It was something like 90 votes for and he was one of the six that voted against. That's pretty bad.

    So . . . Insufficient herd instinct is the problem?

    Depends on his reason. Do you know what it was?

    Do you realize how much it costs the taxpayers to fund a paid Federal holiday. Think of all of the Federal workers and the lost productivity that a holiday brings.

    Many who voted against the MLK day did it for economic reasons not because MLK was black.

    I'm in favor of the holiday. I just think the size of the voting margin is a weak reason to criticize.

    Google every group...at the very least. David Duke was not in attendance. David Duke founded the group. David Duke is notorious in LA politics for his whit supremacist positions. I don't know about you but every group that I attend much less speak at I find out what the group is, what they advocate and at the very least who the founder/president of the group is. I then make a determination if I want to go to this group. This is called due diligence. Either Scalise knew it was a white supremacist group and didn't care and is now lying about it or he is woefully guilty of not doing due diligence. Either way it doesn't reflect well on him or his party as he is now in the leadership.
