Day 2

In his almost 16 years in Congress, King has passed exactly one bill as primary sponsor, redesignating a post office. He won’t debate his opponent and rarely holds public town halls. Instead, he spends his time meeting with fascist leaders in Europe and retweeting neo-Nazis.
Des Moines Register Editorial Board, October 13, 2018

Day 43

None of the funds made available by this Act may be used to encourage, allow, or require any individual to use any bathroom other than the bathroom of the individual’s biological sex.
Steve King, in amendment to the 2016 bill that funds Congress’ annual payroll, maintenance and operations budget

* King subsequently voted against the bill, since his amendment was not added to it.

 

Day 69

In my office, I have placed the portrait of Phyllis Schlafly, whose leadership to advance conservative principles is surpassed by none.
Steve King, recipient of the 2018 Phyllis Schlafly Award for Leadership

* Sexual harassment on the job is not a problem for virtuous women.
** So long as her husband earns a good income, a woman doesn’t care about the pay gap between them.

*** By getting married, the woman has consented to sex, and I don’t think you can call it rape.

Phyllis Schlafly

Day 90

There probably are not 72 virgins in Islamic terrorists’ hell; if there are, they probably all look like Helen Thomas.*
Steve King

* Helen Thomas (1920-2013) was an American reporter and author best known for her longtime membership in the White House press corps. She covered the White House during the administrations of ten U.S. presidents—from the start of the Kennedy administration to the second year of the Obama administration.
