TPM Totally Distorts Rep. Steve King’s Comment on Rape

The left-wing site, Talking Points Memo, totally distorted Rep. Steve King’s comments regarding rape in an article posted today.

TPM’s headline: “Rep. Steve King: I’ve Never Heard Of A Girl Getting Pregnant From Statutory Rape Or Incest.”

Now for Rep. King’s actual quote:

‘Well, I just haven’t heard of that being a circumstance that’s been brought to me in any personal way, and I’d be open to discussion about that subject matter.’

TPM tries to twist Rep. King’s words to suggest that he’d never heard of pregnancy resulting from statutory rape or incest before. That is clearly NOT what Rep. King said.
