From the Take Down King website:
Thousands of calls, hundreds of flyers, dozens of sign-ups, and multiple cities organized in just a few weeks?
That’s the power of everyday people like you getting together and fighting back with Women Against King.
When we talked with voters and recruited new volunteers at Clear Lake’s Independence Day parade, we knew it wasn’t just the hot weather making Steve King sweat as he marched past.
King knows we’re gaining momentum throughout the district, and he’s feeling the heat.

“The first film to expose the shocking truth behind the economic collapse of 2008. The global financial meltdown, at a cost of over $20 trillion, resulted in millions of people losing their homes and jobs. Through extensive research and interviews with major financial insiders, politicians, and journalists, INSIDE JOB traces the rise of a rogue industry and unveils the corrosive relationships which have corrupted politics, regulation, and academia.”
As a champion of financial de-regulation, Congressman Steve King bears some responsibility for the 2008 financial collapse our nation still struggles to recover from. Well-funded by Wall Street and corporate friends, King repeatedly voted against tighter oversight of Wall Street which could prevent the Crime of the Century from being committed again with impunity.
Immigrants, King insists, must obey the letter of the law while criminals in pin-striped suits walk free. He even wants to create a national holiday for “victims of immigrant violence” yet wouldn’t vote for the Dodd-Frank Legislation aimed at curbing criminal financial abuse. King has even tried to privatize Social Security, which could have resulted in a windfall of over $275 million in fees to his Wall Street friends.
We are showing the Oscar-winning documentary “Inside Job” to help people fully understand the financial collapse of 2008 and learn how King could have helped prevent it. His refusal to hold rich and powerful criminals accountable proves, yet again, how he fails to reflect Iowa values and is unfit to represent us.
