Trying to spur right-wing hatred against vegetarians at a town hall Steve King (R – Iowa) told a story about how he interrogated witnesses at a committee hearing, having them “confess under oath” that they were indeed vegetarians.  The problem with his story however is that it’s not true!

According to the Huffington Post, transcripts of said meeting prove that King’s story is bogus – he never questioned witnesses about being vegetarians.  Also, the Huff Post says that King’s assertion of PETA being at the meeting is false too.
