First time I've asked for money in ten years.
But we're 300 bucks short of the $2600 or so we need to place a full-page ad in the Sioux City Journal making very clear that some voters in Iowa's Fourth District don't appreciate the inane prejudices of our congressman, Rep. Steve King. Those of you who are not from here will remember him for claiming Hispanic illegals have cantaloupe calves from toting all those drugs over the border. Just a week or so ago, he claimed we don't need other countries' babies, then doubled down on that poison phrase with even more xenophobic invective.
An AP story claimed that here in King's stronghold, nobody really objected to his prejudices. People here simply assumed, "well, that's Steve."
Some of us don't want to be tallied in that way, so we're doing a GoFundMe to raise money for a full-page ad declaring as much in the region's biggest papers. We'll take anything right now--nickles, dimes, or quarters.
Won't you consider contributing?
