Steve Scalise may have addressed a white supremacist conference in 2002

The sourcing on this is an anonymous commenter in a thread on Stormfront. So maybe let's wait and see what else comes out. On the other hand, there is a clear history of guys coming up out of Scalise's part of Jefferson Parish having to sort of kiss David Duke's ring in one subtle way or another at some point. So this is more than just a little bit plausible.

Update: Confirmed!

Umm... nope. Sorry, blaming staff is not gonna fly.  David Duke's legacy has remained a matter of significant import to the Louisiana Republican Party for many years. Especially so in Jefferson Parish, where from Scalise emerged into prominence and in the JP plus Northshore Congressional district he currently represents.

His appearance at this conference may have been a "staff" decision. But it wasn't an accident. And he certainly understood what was happening at the time.

Why are there so many Nazi's in Metairie? Did a group of them get Paperclip'd there?
