Steve King dodges censure bullet in US House

Iowa's only Republican in the House of Representatives dodged the censure bullet Tuesday.

Instead of voting on a measure to censure or expel Rep. Steve King from Congress, instead the House approved a measure which says the House of Representatives " once again rejects White nationalism and White supremacy as hateful expressions of intolerance that are contradictory to the values that define the people of the United States."

In remarks on the House floor, King acknowledged that he made remarks referring to white nationalism and white supremacy...but said they were questions taken out of context.  

He said he agrees with the resolution...saying he comes from a family of abolitionists, who fought in the Civil War against slavery.  He added his vote to the others who voted for the resolution which reads:

H. RES. 41

Rejecting White nationalism and White supremacy.
