HSLF Launches Commercial Opposing Con. Steve King

The Humane Society Legislative Fund’s second ad against the Iowa incumbent launched last week after its first ad was engulfed in controversy.

On September 28, the Humane Society Legislative Fund launched a television ad opposing Iowa 4th Congressional District incumbent Steve King’s reelection to congress. The Congressman, who was previously mocked by comedian Stephen Colbert for his comments about dog fighting, is under fire in the new commercial for his contradictory voting record. King, despite claiming he is opposed to animal cruelty, voted against including pets in disaster plans, harsher penalties for dog fighting, and a federal ban on bringing children to dog fights. HSLF’s original commercial was rejected by local TV stations under pressure from King, but the Des Moines Register wrote an exposé on the matter, describing the ad as “accurate” and “true.”
