Rep. Peter King threatens congressional colleagues over Sandy relief vote

When the House failed to pass a pork-laden $60 billion Sandy relief bill earlier this month, New York GOP Rep. Peter King called it “indefensible” and called Republicans who opposed the bill “disgraceful.” Congress eventually decided to pass relief legislation in two phases, and is set to vote today on the second. Many conservatives are opposed to this legislation being passed as-is because it is loaded with non-Sandy-related pork. But King wants his out-of-state colleagues to know that they’d better toe his line this time around … or else:

Uh, beg your pardon?

King fails to reserve any outrage for the bill’s plethora of pork:

And instead resorts to an ominous veiled threat.

Or, as Rep. King might say, “disgraceful.”
