David Duke was a grandwizard of the Ku Klux Klan and-one term state representative who went on to run for Governor of Louisiana, but was defeated when former Governor Edwin Edwards entered the race and won, despite having been indicted for fraud and bribery during a prior term (1984-1988) in office. Duke won nearly 40% of the vote. In more recent years, Duke was sentenced to a year in a federal Texas prison for bilking supporters by claiming poverty while actually living in a mansion. As his time in a Baton Rouge halfway house neared an end in May 2004, Duke continued to deny the charges. He mulled a run for the open seat of former GOP rep David Vitter and began a new organization dedicated to celebrating "European-American Unity".
