Loebsack: For the Good of Iowa, Steve King Needs to Resign
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack today called on Rep. Steve King to resign for the good of the people of Iowa. While Steve King has a long history of making hateful and disgusting remarks, by having his committee assignments taken away, he is no longer able to effectively serve the people of Iowa. Loebsack also announced today that he has become an original cosponsor of Rep. Tim Ryan’s bipartisan resolution to censure Steve King for his history of making hateful and disgusting remarks. Earlier today, Loebsack sent a letter to Rep. King outlining his position.
“I have repeatedly called out Steve King when he has made disgusting and vile comments. His words and beliefs should have no place in public discourse. Additionally, Steve has made no effort to change his behavior and I believe it is past time for him to be held accountable for his actions.
“Iowans deserve a Congressman who is able to fight on their behalf and now that Steve’s committee assignments have been taken away, he is unable to truly be a representative for the people. Iowans deserve someone who can serve without distraction, and advocate for the people of their district. It is clear that Steve is no longer able to serve in that capacity and should, for the good of Iowa, resign and pass the important responsibilities of this office to another.”
