Lawmakers Vote to Condemn White Supremacy, Rebuking Rep. Steve King

HeadlineJan 16, 2019

The House of Representatives voted 424 to 1 Tuesday to condemn white nationalism and white supremacy, in a rebuke to Iowa Republican Congressmember Steve King. The vote came after King told The New York Times in an interview published last week, “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization—how did that language become offensive?” Tuesday’s vote was not a formal censure of Steve King, who’s made similar remarks throughout his 16-year career in Congress.
