    He probably should, but I suspect he will remain indignant about the whole thing.

    Only if it comes out that he holds these kinds of views and makes a habit of speaking for extremist racist groups.

    But when looking at this incident only, no, he should not have to step down. Making a mistake should not immediately lead to stepping down from your position.

    I voted "other" because I'm interested in seeing what happens to him next because for some reason I believe that this is not over

    No crime committed, event happened a dozen years ago, so why exactly would he step down?

    Wasn't that discovered to be not quite true, very likely misleading, and pretty much ... false?

    I know of someone whose marriage was "arranged" by a racist, married by that racist, and spent a whole lot of years in that racist's pew.
    Not illegal, though.

    Because he embarasses the Republican party and Greta Van Susteren thinks the Republican members of Congress should put pressure on him to step down.
