King writes a letter

This is from earlier this year when the noose started to tighten around Tom Delay.
Notice how the increasingly unstable King goes on the attack. Classic. Just classic.

"I am in receipt of your recent e-mail and am appalled by your ignorance.
My vote was based on the fundamental American principle that people are innocent until proven guilty. Under our constitutional system an indictment has nothing to do with guilt or innocence - but is merely a set of unproven charges. Anyone with even the slightest knowledge of such prosecutorial abuses as the Nadjari investigations or the political indictments of Labor Secretary Donovan, Congressman Roncallo or Congressman McDade (each of whom was found innocent) would realize how much democracy is threatened by political prosecutions. Unfortunately, you seem to know nothing about anything.
Even Newsday, no friend of mine or Tom Delay, wrote in its recent editorial that "innocent until proven guilty is still the rule in the United States so...House Republicans were on solid ground this week when they rescinded a rule that forced members to give up any role in the leadership if indicted...Rep. Peter King got this one right."
In conclusion, I thank you for promising not to vote for me and I would suggest that you might want to consider checking yourself in for some anger management therapy.
Pete King"

Isn't this the same Peter King who said "I would say, you could say that 80-85 percent of mosques in this country are controlled by Islamic fundamentalists,"
