Steve King is nuttier than a fruitcake - it's no wonder his opponent is being supported...

  • King displayed the Confederate flag on his office desk, despite the fact that Iowa was part of the Union during the American Civil War. He removed it after a Confederate flag-waver shot two Iowa police officers.

 

  • In May 2014, King compared the torture and prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib prison to "hazing"

 

  • King has also received a score of zero from the Animal Humane Society.


And he was an eight-term Congressman (Going on nine)? I can't believe he was never voted out?

Iowa Newspaper Breaks Tradition To Back Rep. Steve King’s Democratic Challenger

 

The Sioux City Journal opts not to support the GOP's White Supremacist’s Steve King’s re-election bid.

 

The editorial board of a major Iowan newspaper has endorsed Rep. Steve King’s Democratic challenger for Congress, bucking its longtime support for one of the GOP’s mostly openly racist lawmakers.

 

The Sioux City Journal’s editorial board on Friday announced its support for J.D. Scholten over incumbent King, who they criticized for repeatedly making “inflammatory or questionable comments” and having ties to “intolerant ugliness.”

 

“In prior endorsements of King, an eight-term representative, we laid out what we respect and admire about our congressman,” the editorial board wrote. “In Scholten, however, King runs against an opponent with many strengths of his own.”

 

Aside from Scholten’s strengths, which include his “willingness to consider all sides of complex issues,” the paper’s editorial board condemned King’s partisanship and refusal to distance himself from white nationalist views.

 

“Each time King immerses himself in controversy, he holds up this district to ridicule and marginalizes himself within the legislative body he serves, neither of which provides benefit to Iowans who live and work here,” they wrote.

 

King constantly retweets other white supremacists on Twitter, espouses Islamophobic views and has advocated against “mixing cultures.” 

 

Earlier this month, he endorsed Toronto mayoral candidate Faith Goldy, a white nationalist who has said she believes homosexuality facilitated the Holocaust.

 

“As we have said before, we would prefer King spend less time trying to ‘save’ Western civilization and making a national name for himself as a conservative leader trying to move the nation to the political right,” the editorial board wrote.
