Piracy brought out the “arrgh” in Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) on Thursday.
King tweeted: “We are debating the Stop Online Piracy Act and Shiela Jackson has so bored me that I'm killing time by surfing the Internet.”
King and Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) are members of the House Judiciary Committee, which held a mark-up hearing for the controversial Stop Online Piracy Act on Thursday.
Committee members have been live-tweeting from the hearing Thursday using the hashtag #SOPA. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), another committee member, has also made the markup and a livestream of the hearing available here.
