Steve King

Rep. Steve King, a Republican from Kiron, talks with Joy Reinert of Hubbard after a town hall meeting at the Eldora Library on Wednesday.

Controversial Congressman Steve King spoke extensively about health care and didn't say anything inflammatory in Eldora on Wednesday. That wasn't the case earlier that morning in Urbandale.

Responding to a question about why King doesn't support an exemption for abortions when the fetus is a product of rape, King replied, "What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled those people out that were products of rape and incest? Would there be any population of the world left if we did that?"
