Rep. Peter King (R-NY) loves P-O-R-K :(

As mentioned in my previous post, I will join the anti-pork blog campaign and plan to analyze how our NY Republican reps voted in Jeff Flake's 19 anti-pork amendments.

Let's start with Congressman Peter T. King. According to his own website, Congressman Peter T. King, a Republican, is serving his seventh term in the U.S. House of Representatives. First elected to represent New York’s Third District in 1992, Rep. King has received a greater number of votes than any Congressional candidate on Long Island in each of his seven races. In 2004, he won with 63% of the vote. Rep. King is Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee and also serves on the International Relations Committee.

So how does Rep. King feel about pork? Well, I was quite surprised to find out that he voted to keep the pork in all 19 of 19 amendments. This ss totally unacceptable! Time to send these "borrow-and-spend" Republicans a clear message in November!

So, how does your rep stack up? Be sure to call your congressman and let him know what you think!
