I am not a fan of King (in fact, quite the opposite), but kudos to him for doing this. The fact that our Congress is too dysfunctional to even pass a disaster relief resolution is infuriating (especially when the biggest doubts about the relief bill are voiced by hypocritical by Southern politicians - the region that ironically is essentially supported by federal tax dollars from the Northeast). I’d love to see King bolt the party. The guy is quite established in his district, and could easily win as an independent. And it would benefit the country to see a high profile politician publicly quit the republican party because of what it has become - a freakshow.
