To be delivered to: Steve King, Representative of the 5th District of Iowa
We pay Steve King $174,000 a year to represent the 5th District of Iowa in Congress--that’s over $70 an hour. Yet, he recently tweeted, “We are debating the Stop Online Piracy Act and Shiela Jackson has so bored me that I'm killing time by surfing the Internet.”
This tweet is a disgrace to the dignity of the office--if an employee of a private business tweeted that he was killing time on the company clock, that person would be fired.
