Iowa Rep. Steve King says he never personally heard of a girl getting pregnant from incest or statutory rape

Iowa Rep. Steve King, Iowa's #1 draft-dodging, homophobic Republican, is evidently so eager to run interference for toxic Missouri GOP Representative Todd Akin's "legitimate rape" remark that he actually told an Iowa television reporter Monday that such a circumstance (a child getting pregnant from statutory rape or incest) has never been "brought to me in any personal way.”
     Well! Obviously King's personal experience is far more important than the fact that a 1996 review by the Guttmacher Institute found “at least half of all babies born to minor women are fathered by adult men.”
     On October 23, 2010, the Des Moines Register endorsed Matt Campbell in Iowa's fifth district congressional race, and called Steve King an "embarrassment to the entire state."
