Washington– Rep. Steve King, a Republican from Iowa, referred to President Obama as “very, very urban,” while charging that as a senator he gave special favor to African American farmers who were victims of government discrimination. In case anybody missed his meaning in a speech on the House floor Monday evening, King emphasized the word “urban,” drawing the first syllable out.

King is referring to legislation created to settle what is known as the Pigford case.

King noted that “Bobby Scott of Virginia and others” introduced legislation in the House that would expand the government’s responsibility in the settlement; Scott is African American.
