King said to the Associated Press "Homeland security is far too important an issue to play politics with"
Then why did King as chairman of the Homeland Security Commitee play politics?
This is an official release as Chairman of the commitee..
"Let's not forget, a number of Democrats have consistently voted against providing proper funding for the War on Terror and provisions important to our homeland security, such as the REAL ID Act. Many even voted against the creation of a Department of Homeland Security in the first place," he concluded. "they think a little partisan grandstanding is going to make up for being soft on this issue, they are mistaken. I hope that in the future they can choose to put politics aside and work with us in a bipartisan manner to make certain our homeland remains secure."
What a hypocrite.
