New York Congressman's Calls Michael Jackson A 'Pervert'

New York congressman Peter King, a Long Island Republican, has posted a video branding Michael Jackson a "pervert" and blasting positive coverage of the singer since his death.

"Let's knock out the psychobabble," says King. "This guy was a pervert. He was a child molester. He was a pedophile. And to be giving this much coverage to him, day in and day out, what does it say about us as a country?"

"We're too politically correct. No one wants to stand up and say we don't need Michael Jackson. He died, he had some talent, fine. People are dying every day."

"I really think the media has disgraced itself. I think too many people in public life have made fools of themselves by talking about Michael Jackson as if he's some kind of hero."

"There's nothing good about this guy. He may have been a good singer, did some dancing. But the bottom line is would you let your child or grandchild be in the same room with Michael Jackson?"

"Let's take some time out to really look at the people that do make us a great country. The men and women of the armed forces, police, firefighters, teachers. They're the ones we should be glorifying. Not some pervert like Michael Jackson.

A jury acquitted Jackson in 2005 of charges that he molested a 13-year-old cancer survivor and a spokesman for Jackson's family, has declined to respond to the congressman's video.
