John Podesta and a group of Democrats called for Rep. Steve Scalise to resign shortly after he began his efforts to combat human trafficking as the Majority Whip of the House.
“In 2002 GOP Majority Whip Steve Scalise spoke at a rally sponsored by former KKK leader, David Duke,” the e-mail stated. “It’s time for Scalise to step down as GOP Majority Whip.”
The signature-drive by Podesta and other Democrats calling for Scalise to resign began at the same time Scalise started working on legislation as the Majority Whip in the House to end human trafficking. Scalise and other Republicans had been working on several bills that took aim at human trafficking. On Jan. 27, 12 of those bills passed in the Republican-controlled House. Scalise gave a press conference at the Capitol about those bills on the same day they were passed.
