Democrats move to censure Steve King over white nationalist outrage

Tim Scott, the GOP's Lone Black Senator, Takes His Party to Task for Tolerating Unhinged Racists

McCarthy on Sunday said that "action will be taken" against King. "That is not the America I know and it's most definitely not the party of Lincoln", he added, cited by AP.

Mr. King was scheduled to meet with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Monday to talk about his comments. "They want to be treated with fairness for some perceived slights but refuse to return the favor to those on the other side". Joni Ernst tweeted a statement condemning King. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, said following McConnell's statement.

According to Bass though, Republicans need to make one thing clear: that King is no longer welcome in the GOP.

He drew attention to comments made by King on Thursday, when the Iowan wondered aloud: "White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization - how did that language become offensive?" "Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?"

The federal government has sovereign immunity to lawsuits, however exceptions to that include salaries to government employees. To meet all safety critical functions, the FAA says it is allocating resources based on risk assessment.

Although King has come under fire for the remarks made on the House floor, he has yet to apologize. "I really haven't been following it", when asked. I think he's absolutely right. "But the more you guys write about that stuff, then it becomes an issue". King told the New York Times last week.

The top House Republican promised on Sunday to take action against the Iowa representative Steve King, over his controversial comments about white supremacy and white nationalism.

"We have made significant progress in our nation, and while there is still work to do, we can not let these intolerant and hateful views hold us back. We can not continue down this path if we want to continue to be a great nation".

Monday on CNN's "Newsroom", network political analyst Kirsten Powers said there wasn't "that much difference" between President Donald Trump and embattled Rep. Steve King (R-IA).

Jayme went missing on October 15, when her parents, James and Denise Closs, were found shot dead in their Barron home. Just happy with lots of emotions and tears tonight but so happy and I can't wait to hug that little girl".

"King's statements have drawn praise from known White supremacists like former Ku KluxKlan leader David Duke", the resolution continues.

Representatives Bobby Rush of IL and Tim Ryan of OH filed resolutions to censure King, the harshest punishment short of expulsion for a congressman, while House majority whip James Clyburn of SC filed a motion that condemned King's comments without aiming to censure him.

In November's election, King narrowly defeated his Democratic challenger, Democrat J.D. Scholten, by 3 percentage points.

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds indicated Wednesday that she won't support King in the 2020 GOP primary. State Sen. Randy Feenstra, R-Hull, announced this week he'd seek the Republican nomination, facing the nine-term King.
