House Whip May Not Have Known He Addressed White Supremacists.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, the third-highest ranked Republican in the House of Representatives, is under fire after he reportedly attended a civil rights workshop organized by a group of alleged white supremacists.

David Duke, the then-president of the European-American Unity and Rights Organization (EURO) and former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard-turned-former Louisiana state representative, confirmed to ABC that House Majority Whip Steve Scalise spoke at a civil rights workshop he organized in 2002, but says Scalise may not have known who he was addressing.

"Steve Scalise came in to speak on, I think, a tax issue and many of the people there were his constituents so you know whether he understood that it was my meeting or not, I don't know," Duke told ABC News in a phone call Monday night. "I can't, you know, I can't say that he did or did not."
