"I reject bigotry of all forms," Scalise said at a Capitol Hill news conference Wednesday. "And I think when you see the people that know me best, both here and especially back home, people I've served with, including people that I've been on opposite ends politically with, who know the truth and know what's in my heart, they're the ones who I think speak the best."
Lets look at a bit of his voting record:
- Voted—in 2004!—against making Martin Luther King Day a state holiday. He was one of six out of 104 legislators to vote that way.
Scalise was one of just two to vote against making Juneteenth a "special day."
He was part of a more substantial minority but still a minority in voting against hate crimes legislation in 1997.
He voted against naming a post office for the first African-American judge in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana.
Apparently his herat isnt connected to his voting finger.
