Steve King on O’Keefe Arrest: ‘It Seems Really Convenient That This Would Happen Now’
At a press availability earlier today, I asked Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) about the arrest of anti-ACORN muckraker James O’Keefe and what it meant for Republicans, like him, who’d partially based a case against the community group on O’Keefe’s reporting. Lee Fang of ThinkProgress asked further questions. All of that is in this video.
“It seems really convenient that this would happen now,” said King. As Fang pointed out, King’s defense of O’Keefe was not entirely consistent with his multiple attacks on ACORN based on media reports of its malfeasance.
