Scuzzbucket of the Week
Representative Steve King from the great state of Iowa.
During a tele-townhall event last week, King complained about an amendment to the farm bill that would criminalize attending organized animal fights and would impose additional penalties on people who bring children to the events.
Here's his quote: “When the legislation that passed in the farm bill that says that it’s a federal crime to watch animals fight or to induce someone else to watch an animal fight, but it’s not a federal crime to induce somebody to watch people fighting, there’s something wrong with the priorities of people that think like that."
Um, Steve? People fight of their own will and usually make a hunk of money to fight.
