Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke on Friday said Maine Gov. Paul LePage (R) was right to say that drug dealers, who Duke referred to as “Puff Diddies,” who travel from New York defile white women in the state.

LePage said last week at a town hall meeting that “guys with the name D-Money, Smoothie” and “Shifty” who come from out of state to sell drugs in Maine often “impregnate a young, white girl before they leave.”

Duke, the former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard, defended LePage on his radio program, noting that the governor didn’t mention race in his comment.

“You are probably picking yourself off the floor to think that an elected governor in the United States of America would actually talk about this horrible destruction and defilement of young white women,” Duke said. “These are not Anglo-Saxon guys from rural Maine doing this. These are, again, like the Puff Diddies — or whatever they want to call themselves — from New York.”
