NYTimes: Steve King Support Dwindling in His Iowa Base

Steve King is the 69-year-old Iowa Congressman who made comments seeming to endorse white supremacy. On January 10, 2019, The New York Times reported that Mr. King said:

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?

Now, Trip Gabriel of The New York Times reports that even his rock-solid supporters think King’s 16-year Congressional career is effectively over. A retired history teacher said he’s dead in the water” and a small business owner thinks he’s done.”

On January 14, 2019, the Antidefamation League (ADL) called for the censure of Mr. King to make clear that the U.S. House of Representatives will not tolerate anti-Semitism or bigotry in any form.”
