King’s Seat Empty During State Of The Union Address

Steve King OfficialWashington, DC — 4th District Iowa Congressman Steve King did not attend President Barack Obama’s final State of the Union speech Tuesday night.

Congressman King left his seat in the House chamber empty, and instead went to the House Member’s Chapel to, in his words, “pray for God to raise up a leader whom He will use to restore the Soul of America.”

In addition, in response to the President’s decision to leave an empty seat next to the First Lady in the House Gallery to commemorate the, “victims of gun violence who no longer have a voice.”  King said that, “the San Bernardino victims’ body temperatures had declined only from 98.6 to 93 degrees when President Obama twisted the ‘Allahh Akbar’ screaming bloodlust of the shooters into an anti-gun, anti-Second Amendment tirade.”

King says he is sickened by the acts of war twisted into ‘workplace violence’ and by a president who would veto the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, H.R. 3504 that would protect the lives, at least of those who survived the attempt on their lives, by abortionists.

King says his decision to leave the seat empty was designed to commemorate the lives of more than 55 million aborted babies, ‘the chorus of voices that have never been heard in this world but are heard beautifully and clearly in the next world.’
