Steve King Says Weekly Standard Intentionally Misrepresented Subject of “Dirt” Joke
Iowa -- The 2018 Election is gone, but pre-election controversy continues to follow Congressman Steve King. Last week King sparked a feud with the conservative magazine "The Weekly Standard" after it published an article accusing King of referring to Mexicans as "dirt." Journalist Adam Rubenstein published the article on election day, saying he overheard the comments as King talked to a supporter at a campaign stop in Iowa days earlier. Rubenstein claimed to have an audio recording of the conversation.
