Attacks on Scalise misfire
Placeholder Image
Democrats have tried to rev up the outrage machine over news Rep. Steve Scalise, the No. 3 ranking House Republican, may or may not have given a speech to a white supremacist group in Louisiana 12 years ago.Not only has the Democratic Party attacked Scalise himself, it has also gone after the House GOP leadership and, now, the 2016 Republican presidential field.The sin of Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, et al, according to the Democratic National Committee, is they have not been quick enough to denounce behavior that may or may not have happened more than a decade ago. "Do you really think it's appropriate to have Rep. Scalise remain a part of Republican leadership, or will you let your silence speak volumes?" the DNC said to the Republican 2016 field on New Year's Eve.First, it's important to say if Scalise did in fact appear before the European-American Unity and Rights Organization in 2002, he shouldn't have.
