Congressman: ‘Implode’ More IRS Offices

In January, Alex Massie called New York Representative Peter King “America’s worst congressman” but maybe that honor should go to Steve King instead? According to a source who heard him, the Republican from Iowa told a crowd at CPAC on Saturday that he could “empathize” with Joe Stack, the Austin man who intentionally crashed his plane into an IRS building in Austin, Texas last week. He said that he wanted to hold a fundraiser to help people “implode” their local IRS offices. Asked later by a reporter about the attack, King said, “I think if we had abolished the IRS back when I first advocated then he wouldn’t have had a target for his airplane.”
