Members of Iowa CCI Action calling on racist, white supremacist Steve King to resign from office immediately

Steve King’s racist white supremacist worldview is not new and it is not a secret.  As Iowans we have become accustomed to writing King off as an embarrassment to our state. But King’s comments are not merely offensive; his worldview is dangerous, and he is trying to make it a reality.

We as Iowans are committed to standing up against hate, standing up against white supremacy, and standing up against religiously and racially motivated violence and those who promote these evils. That is why we confronted King in November at a campaign event in Des Moines.

This is a moral issue and a wakeup call. Many in politics and our government have spent years turning a blind eye to King’s explicit white supremacist worldview for their own profit and political gain. In this moment, denouncing King and his racist white supremacist agenda is not nearly enough. Now is the time for Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, Senator Joni Ernst, and Senator Chuck Grassley, who have cozied up to King in the past, to join us in calling for King to resign from office immediately.
