GOP Rep. Liz Cheney Calls On Steve King To Resign

The Washington Post reports:

Rep. Liz Cheney (Wyo.), the third-ranking House Republican, called Tuesday for Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) to “find another line of work,” as Democrats remained divided over how harshly to punish the longtime lawmaker for openly questioning whether the term “white supremacist” is offensive.

Cheney’s comments came at a news conference held by House Republican leaders a day after they moved to punish King by stripping him of his committee assignments. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) condemned King’s comments but stopped short of calling for his resignation. “I think that’s up to Steve King,” he said.

When asked the same question, Cheney said she agreed with an assessment made Monday by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). “I think he should find another line of work,” Cheney said of King.
