    I don’t expect either one of these to do anything other than what their masters in the republican hierarchy tell them to do. This whole thing is a sham and a shame. The majority party should be ashamed of themselves but tthat would require some critical self evaluation and they simply won’t do that. They cant’ ever admit they’re wrong or lying both of which occure far to frequently.

    Is this the same Steve King who worked for Nixon on the Watergate cover-up in 1972? What a fitting choice for Vos to make.
