The Washington Post first reported Tuesday on the donation by Kenny Knight, who was once national director of the group, the European-American Unity and Rights Organization, to Scalise in 2008.

The Daily Beast also surfaced the Federal Election Commission filing that documented the donation.

Knight has said in interviews that Scalise knew him, knew his affiliations but wasn't active in the group. He has since asserted that Scalise didn't even speak to EURO, appearing to contradict his previous statements.
