Steve Scalise did attend and address that 2002 EURO event. He has admitted to it. My and my son's motivation to blow the whistle on him has nothing to do with revenge or political aspirations.
Scalise's sidekick, Kenny Knight, is a liar, grabbing at non-credible and easily disproven counter statements. The head honcho of this event was not Knight but Vincent Breeding, an unsavory character the GOP does not want connected to Scalise. Breeding not only managed this event, he ran the Council of Conservative Citizens (kissing cousin of EURO and KKK with some of the same members). That is, he ran it until forced to resign due to police record, several aliases, misuse of women, operation of a porn business and online porn magazine. Breeding was also Duke’s Chief of Staff and a self-avowed satanist. Sure can’t have Scalise connected at all with this guy any more than having his name sullied with the likes of Duke.
Whether Scalise was pandering for political expediency (as did Cassidy with all his Obama-hate rhetoric) or whether he truly believed and still believes himself superior to those of different skin shades, is not the point. The fact that he courted hate-filled groups should disqualify him from holding the Majority Whip position.
As for my part and my son’s part in Lamar White’s masterful article, here is the chronology. There was no “sitting deliberately” on the story. In the absence of the pdf file picture that will be surefire proof, Lamar was able to verify our claims via the comment sections of the Stormfront website (oops—whoever scrubbed the website forgot something). My son, Robert Reed, had alerted our Facebook friend Lamar in November that the story existed because we were not happy with the added power Scalise had with his leadership post. Lamar was very much interested so Robby asked me to reconnect with my campaign source from 2008. This source is not a politician nor does he even live in LA. It was a longshot but I found him. He must remain anonymous as reprisals are not imaginary but quite real possibilities.
Despite what is lighting up the conservative media nationwide, my and Robby’s motivation had nothing to do with revenge. Seven years later?? Give me a break. Nor does it have anything to do with political aspirations. I cannot and will not run for Congress again from this district. Nor does it involve my fear of losing my UNO job. House reps have no power over state funding of higher education. If anything, my job is far more jeopardized from the same underhanded GOP reprisals that my unidentified source is afraid of.
Our motivation is justice and equality for all, a foreign concept to Scalise. The fraud allegations abound concerning this guy and they make us unhappy. Surely we do not like his personal scandal either. But his discriminatory attitude and mindset quite evident in the legislation he pushed and in the company he kept (including the gay-hating Perkins and the black-hating Labruzzo), make us livid.
Now if only there was a way to get a dime for every label of “bitch”, etc. from the misinformed, bigoted haters on all these conservative venues, then I would be a rich woman.
