Goodlatte ignored Steve King’s racism last year. Will he speak out now?

Congressman Steve Stivers of Ohio, chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, has had enough of his fellow Republican, the white nationalist Congressman Steve King of Iowa.

Congressman Stivers, a principled Republican, stands in contrast to Congressman Goodlatte, who ignored evidence of King’s racial bigotry in January 2017 and appointed him as chair of the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice, declaring: “His expertise on many of the issues facing our nation and the committee make him well-suited to serve as chairman of the Constitution and Civil Justice Subcommittee. I look forward to working with him as we seek to safeguard Americans’ liberties and promote an efficient and just legal system.”

  1. And what about his most recent comments about Justices Kagan and Sotomayor and how they should elope and go to Cuba? Shouldn’t a rebuke by the committee be in order?
