Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Steve King said that “rape and incest” were essential to the survival of the human population. Congressman Tony Cárdenas (CA-29) releases the following statement:

“Representative Steve King’s comments are disgusting and unbecoming of a United States Congressman. King has a history of making misogynistic, racist, and hateful statements that have no place in our society or the House of Representatives. We need leaders who are looking to unify our country, not divide the American people. Republican leadership must stand up and condemn King’s comments. We cannot allow this kind of behavior to go unchecked. This is bigger than party politics, this is about the soul of our nation.”
