Republican Values and Priorities

The White House seems more exercised about a Nazi-panderer being a top Republican leader in Congress than most congressional Democrats:

Scalise has been under fire over revelations that he gave a speech to a white supremacist group 12 years ago.

Scalise is the third-ranking Republican in the House. Several members of his party say they are supporting him after he said he regrets giving the speech.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest says it’s up to Republicans to decide whether he retains his position and what that says about their conference. But Earnest says who is in their leadership “says a lot about who they are, what their values are and what the priorities of the conference should be.”

I expect the House Republicans to shrug.

They are who we thought they were.

    “Ultimately, Mr. Scalise reportedly described himself as David Duke without the baggage. So it will be up to Republicans to decide what that says about their conference,” Earnest said.
