Roll Call‘s John Stanton reports that Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) is accusing Obama of favoring black people. Stanton got the scoop from a clip of an interview King did on G. Gordon Liddy’s radio show.
“The president has demonstrated that he has a default mechanism in him that breaks down the side of race Â— on the side that favors the black person,” King, who is white, argued during the interview.
Stanton tapped the quote from politicalcorrection.org, a lefty site associated with Media Matters Action Network. Political Correction did not seek comment from King in its writeup; Stanton sought comment from King but “a King spokesman did not immediately return a request for comment.”
Liddy’s radio show is syndicated by Radio America on both Sirius Satellite Radio and XM Satellite Radio.
