Congressional Black Caucus Calls For Removal of Rep. Steve King From Committee Assignments
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Congressional Black Caucus on Saturday condemned Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, and called on King's fellow Republicans to remove him from his committee assignments. "If Republicans really believe these racist statements have no place in our government, then their party must offer more than shallow temporary statements of condemnation," said CBC Chairwoman Rep. Karen Bass, D-California, in a statement. "Instead, they must actually condemn Mr. King by removing him from his committee assignments so that he can no longer affect policies that impact the very people he has made it clear he disdains."
