Rep. Peter King of New York made a splash by posting a video rant on YouTube attacking Michael Jackson. King started by talking about all kinds of positive patriotic stuff and then quickly swung around to Jackson, calling the deceased performer "a low life" and twice "a pervert." Adding, "He was a child molester. He was a pedophile."
As the King of Pop was acquitted of charges he molested a 13-year-old boy, I'm not sure where King, Long Island's only Republican congressman, is getting his facts. As you can see, on King's site, he has a "kids corner" right next to his contact info and his mug. Is the congressman trying to lure young children? Sure looks like it!
In any case, I happened to be on Long Island today in King's district and I decided to go the extra mile and find out what residents of Jericho, NY thought of their Congressman's video antics. Enjoy this exclusive trip to find out the answers!
