Rep. Peter King ‘Manhunters’ Video Sparks U.S. Marshals Probe

Source: Talking Points Memo

A video posted to the YouTube account of Rep. Peter King (R-NY) has sparked an investigation by the U.S. Marshals Service into why a videographer accompanying the New York Republican was allowed to film inside private residences against a federal policy.

Shortly after noon on Tuesday, a tweet from King’s account linked to an eight minute video of a ride-along with a “fugitive task force” including U.S. marshals on Monday. It showed King, the chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, joining police as they broke down doors and arrested a suspected fugitive. The video carried the logo of the “Manhunters” reality TV show and featured one of its stars, marshals commander Lenny DePaul.

After TPM made inquiries about the video with King’s office, it was marked “private” and no longer available to the public on YouTube. Later, the video was removed from YouTube entirely.

A shorter version, with almost a minute of footage cut out, was posted later in the day, and tweeted from King’s account. Clips of an officer kicking in a door, a joke about how King “got” a suspect and an officer describing to King how he kicked someone, perhaps the suspect, off a ladder were cut out.

2. From what I hear he was a strong supporter of the IRA, downplaying civilian deaths, until the

IRA opposed the war in Iraq Some terrorism is ok in his book. Some parts of Long Island are pretty conservative.

7. Actually, locally,

It's a few very large, very fundamentalist Temples. But it plays out the same way.

3. Peter King--Stalin's soulmate, great American (OK, not so great)

King was the one who, on election day 2004, said, from the White House, "It's all over
but the counting, and we'll take care of the counting."

"Those who cast the votes decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything."--Josef Stalin

4. King is cutting in on Arpaio & Seagal's Action.

I remember Alexandra Pelosi's "Travels With George" documentary on the 2000 election. She interviewed a boozed-up Rep. King, who told her on film "It's all over but the counting. And we'll take care of the counting."

How many votes did he get from the repugs for the 9-11 First Responders Health Bill that he co-sponsored? Around 9. He was too busy suiting up for a raid.
