Oh sure, you have your Michele Bachmanns and Louie Gohmerts, and even, God forbid, next year a fellow Iowan Jodie Ernst; but still, no member of Congress is more proudly ignorant than Steve King…representative of Iowa’s Fourth District.

DREAM activists Erika Andiola and Cesar Vargas confronted Rep. Steve King (R-IA) in a restaurant about his opposition to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) memo, which defers deportation of some immigrants who migrated to the United States as children. In the video, Andiola offers King the opportunity to tear up her DACA card.

Congress’ most inveterate racist (okay, may be a tie) is not just aware he’s a malevolent force – no, Steve King revels in it.

Yesterday, Rep. Tom Latham (R) decided that he would not run for the Senate. Latham was widely viewed as one of the Republican Party’s best hopes for winning the seat in the general election and would have given King a very tough primary fight for the party’s nomination.
The news got even better for King today when Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds (R), another potential top-tier candidate, announced that she would not challenge King in the primary. Reynolds will only run if King decides not to.

Steve King has made innumerable racists, sexist, bigoted, homophobic and simply stupid statements in his career — sadly some of these statements have political support from his conservative base. But there is generally one area that even the far-right and far-left agree — naturally it isn’t about human beings, it is about dogs. Steve King is so dumb and thuggish he defends dog fighting.

It’s not because Akin might lose to McCaskill, costing the GOP control of the Senate. It’s not because the focus on Akin might derail the careful planning for next week’s Republican National Convention. It’s not because the focus on Akin might spill over into the presidential race, forcing Romney and Ryan to talk more about social issues than the deficit, the budget, and the economy, and perhaps costing them the White House. It’s because Akin chose what Ryan did not.

Rep. Steve King has been threatening to sue the Obama Administration over their new directive to stop deportation proceedings and instead offer work permits to DREAM-eligible undocumented immigrants. King continued that threat yesterday.
