Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), the House majority whip, acknowledged Monday that he spoke at a gathering hosted by white supremacist leaders while serving as a state representative in 2002, thrusting a racial controversy into House Republican ranks days before the party assumes control of both congressional chambers.

 In the past, he has aligned himself with the staunchest opponents of immigration reform in the GOP, including Rep. Steve King of Iowa. 

When King put forth a pair of bills that would have ended birthright citizenship and established English as the nation's official language, Scalise signed on as a co-sponsor.

You only have to listen to hear what they're saying.
