I just received an email about Iowa Republican Representative Steve King's support for dogfighting. This is no joke and my purpose here is to alert those who don't know about this most sick form of advocacy for animal abuse and torture that there is something you can do to stop it. 

To quote Mr. King: When the legislation that passed in the farm bill that says that it’s a federal crime to watch animals fight or to induce someone else to watch an animal fight but it’s not a federal crime to induce somebody to watch people fighting, there’s something wrong with the priorities of people that think like that.

You can watch a heartless video of Mr. King and sign a petition here asking him not to support dog fighting. Please also spread the word far and wide because cruelty cannot stand the spotlight. 

The teaser image can be seen here.
