Stephen King is a world-renowned and beloved author/screenwriter of horror and thriller stories such as The Shining, It and Pet Semetary. Now he has a message for Iowans: vote OUT his Republican namesake!
Iowans, for personal reasons I hope you’ll vote Steve King out. I’m tired of being confused with this racist dumbbell.

The “racist dumbbell” whom Stephen King (the author) is confused with, is Steve King (R-IA) of the House of Representatives. Steve King’s racism runs deep, as he has been quoted making racist remarks against immigrants and, during a recent trip to Austria, reportedly met with a far-right party founded by a former Nazi SS Officer.

I live in Iowa but not the same district. I wish I did so I could help vote him out. Between him, Grassley and Ernst, they really give Iowa a bad name! Thanks for your help.

King won his last eight elections without much opposition, but he may have gotten too comfortable in office.
According to a Des Moines Register/Media.com Iowa Poll released on Saturday, November 3rd, in light of his anti-Semitic ties and the recent Tree Of Life shooting, 45% percent of voters who responded to the poll said they planned to vote Democrat, while only 39% said they would vote for King again.
Do not confuse the guy who wrote children of the corn with an actual child of the corn.

Given your books, it’s oddly appropriate that you have an evil doppelgänger

Today is the big day. November 6th.
Together, you, I, and Stephen King can vote the Republicans out of office.
Wow, that’s the opposite of people thinking I might end up on the Supreme Court.
Iowa, please help this great artist from Maine.

Trust me …. as an Iowan, I wish you WERE the Mr. King that represented me in congress. My vote was cast last week. Also, get the word out to remove Kim Reynolds…Steve King is her campaign chairman.

One writes horror, one's just plain horrible.

For real every time he's in the news, I'm momentarily confused about when Stephen King became a horrible racist, and then I remember he's not and breathe a sigh of relief. STEVE King is the horrible racist; STEPHEN King is the wonderful, corgi-loving horror author.

As your northern neighbour, please, whatever it takes. Vote for Lady Liberty, vote for your rights, vote for the love of your country. For the love of God just vote!
