David Duke

David Ernest Duke (born July 1, 1950) is a right-wing American activist and politician. He ran for President of the United States in 1988 and again in 1992.[1] He is a white supremacist. He states the Jews were responsible for communism.[2] He was recently the subject of controversy because of his claim that Representative Scalise and other Republican leaders had links to him in the past. He was interviewed by Bill O'Reilly on the Fox News Channel and Michael Smerconish on the Cable News Network to discuss this.[3]
