Scalise “Regrets” Speech

From Politico:

Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise is in full damage control mode and has publicly apologized for a 2002 speech to a white supremacist group.

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and other GOP leaders also issued statements of support for Scalise in an organized effort to limit the political fallout from the scandal and keep the Louisiana Republican in his job as House majority whip.

In a statement released Tuesday afternoon, Scalise called his appearance before the European-American Unity and Rights Organization (EURO) — an extremist group founded by former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke — a “mistake I regret” and added that he rejected the organization’s racist ideology.

The usual mea culpas, MSM/Democratic piling, and and GOP distancing follows.
