Representative Liz Cheney Speaks Out Against Representative Steve King’s Comments
After Representative Steve King (R-IA) gave a speech claiming there would be “no population left” without rape and incest, members of both parties called for his resignation, including Wyoming Republican Liz Cheney, who said:
Today’s comments by @RepSteveKingIA are appalling and bizarre. As I’ve said before, it’s time for him to go. The people of Iowa’s 4th congressional district deserve better.
