Mia Love Discusses Steve Scalise Controversy (Video)

Rep. Mia Love says House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-Louisiana) should keep his job despite the controversy swirling around a speech he gave to a white supremacist group in 2002.

Love, appearing on ABC's "This Week" questioned the timing of the story, saying it's "interesting" that the controversy is coming up now. Via Huffintgon Post:


"I can say as far as I'm concerned with Representative Scalise, he has been absolutely wonderful to work with," she said. "He's been very helpful for me and he has had the support of his colleagues."

She added Scalise should keep his leadership spot.

"I believe he should remain in leadership," Love said. "There's one quality that he has that I think is very important in leadership and that's humility, and he's actually shown that in this case and has apologized and I think we need to move on and get the work of the American people done."
