Congressman Who Sponsored National ‘Right To Work’ Act Compares Himself To Jesus At Town Hall

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa)  would love every state to become “right to work.”

So much so that he co-sponsored the National “Right to Work Act” in 2017.

Fortunately, that legislation has gone nowhere as his political clout has dropped significantly after making white supremacist statements.

After being reubked by Congress for his remarks, King has lashed out at his opponents by comparing his situation to the persecution of Jesus Christ.

Speaking at a town hall in Cherokee, Iowa, King stated:

“And when I had to step down to the floor of the House of Representatives and look up at those 400-and-some accusers — you know, we’ve just passed through Easter and Christ’s Passion — and I have a better insight into what he went through for us, partly because of that experience.”

King lost his positions on the House Judiciary, Agriculture and Small Business committees after making the controversial remarks.
