GOP Lawmaker Urges No Donations to Republicans

Rep. Peter King (R-NY) "went to war with his Republican colleagues on Wednesday after leaders spiked a Hurricane Sandy relief bill, calling on New Yorkers to stop all donations to GOP House members," Politico reports.

Said King: "These Republicans have no problem finding New York when they're out raising millions of dollars. They're in New York all the time filling their pockets with money from New Yorkers. I'm saying right now, anyone from New York or New Jersey who contributes one penny to congressional Republicans is out of their minds. Because what they did last night was put a knife in the back of New Yorkers and New Jerseyans. It was an absolute disgrace."

He added: "As far as I'm concerned, I'm on my own. They're going to have to go a long way to get my vote on anything."
