If this information came out before the election we would have one less GOP congress person

This is a petition and I hope you will sign it. I can't believe what this man is doing and I can't believe this is the first time I am hearing about it.

Target: Rep. Steve King
Sponsored by: Humane Society Legislative Fund

The influence of Iowa Rep. Steve King's extreme anti-animal views extends well beyond the borders of his home state. King led the fight to try to block legislation that would crack down on the barbaric practices of dogfighting and cockfighting nationwide, and has consistently voted against even the most basic protections for animals, such as including pets in disaster planning. He recently introduced an amendment to the Farm Bill seeking to nullify state and local laws dealing with animal welfare and food safety around the country!

Rep. King is one of the most senior Republican members of the powerful House Agriculture Committee. So many pieces of federal animal protection legislation go to this committee and can be held up by King and other enemies of animal protection. Given his powerful committee post, King's anti-animal positions affect animal welfare nationwide.

2. King is evil personified. He has no redeeming qualities.
