A not very well known figure in the house of representatives Steve Scalise has pretty much raised through the republican ranks over the years as just another white, racist, homophobe who supports domestic violence. Kinda easy to blend in and go unnoticed with such beliefs in a party like the 2014 Republican Party. Actually His beliefs gave him an extreme support among the tea party which is why he is now the 2nd most powerful person in the Republican controlled house of representatives. Position previously held by Jewish Eric Cantor was voted out of office in 2014 by a more radical republican teabagger.
So pretty much a white supremacist is now replacing a position previously held by a jewish republican. Anyways you might question why am i calling this guy a white supremacist? why are you putting a republican cape and a white hood on his head? and why in the earth are you inducting him in your collection of homophobic butt plugs among Rick Scott, Putin and the leader of The Westboro Baptist church?
well look at his voting record.. let's see what kinda of nutbag this now 2nd most powerful person in the house of representatives is. He voted agaisnt a Hate crimes bill that included gays, Authored constitutional amendment to exclude gay marriage, he voted Amend Constitution to exclude gay marriage, he against the reauthorization of the Domestic Violence Act, supporting anti LBGT hate groups etc etc.. So we pretty much stablish that this guy is a deuchebag and a homphobe but that is what the republican party looks for to advance and give power in the republican power.
Anyways the controversy this guy is now famous for is for giving a speech in a white supremacist convention put together by David Duke as a special guest, Referring to himself as "David Duke without the baggage", Paying $82,500 for David Duke's white supremacists mailing list, David Duke coming to his defense by threathening to expose other republicans who seeked his help to gain office, etc etc.. you take your pick of which reason he should be kicked out of his house majority whip position. I think Steve Scalise views are dumb, uneducated, and bigoted but i dont think he is dumb enought to be clueless that he was talking to a white supremacist convetion and buying a white supremacist mailing list. But if you think this guy was that dumb and naive. Do you want him as the Republican House majority Whip in the house of representatives and the 2nd Most powerful person there? I sure don't
