Delaney: Time for Steve King to Go

 

FRIENDSHIP HEIGHTS, MD – Following the racist comments made by Iowa Congressman Steve King to the New York Times last week, John Delaney is calling on him to step down and releases the below statement:

“Serving as a member of Congress is a unique honor and Steve King’s comments regarding racism and white supremacy are disqualifying on their face. King is unfit for office and has no place in our political body or our national discourse.

“Instead of appealing to our better angels, the Congressman has repeatedly espoused divisive, xenophobic, and blatantly racist language. Republicans in Washington can no longer turn a blind eye to his behavior. It’s time for Steve King to go.”
