Poll: Your feelings about the Steve Scalise-David Duke controversy?

capitol-dcThe recent controversy involving Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise, David Duke and his associates have engendered much controversy, and media attention, as the United States Congress begins its work for 2015. After the news story broke, Scalise admitted that his attendance at the 2002 event held at the Landmark Hotel in Metairie Louisiana was a mistake.

 However, despite the admission, some believe that there are some unanswered questions regarding his actual knowledge of the event. Then there are some who feel that the outrage over the controversy is totally manufactured, primarily by those on the political left and some in the media.  Then, there are some who feels that Scalise knew more about the event involving David Duke and his associate Kenny Knight and is not disclosing what he knew and what he currently remembers.

The criticism of the majority House Whip is not limited to Democrats, some in the media and many on the left. Fox News Sean Hannity, Sarah Palin and others have been highly critical of  Scalise. 

While Scalise is a much more recognizable political figure lately, he does have the support of Speaker John Boehner and many Republicans and even some Democrats in the U.S. Congress.

How do you feel about the controversy?  Please take the poll and feel free to forward to your friends and contacts.  We will be releasing results at the end of this week.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
