Congressman on Jackson: 'He Was a Pedophile'

7/5/2009 11:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Congressman Pete King (R-NY) feels we should be honoring the men and women of the Armed Forces -- and not a "pedophile" and "child molester" like Michael Jackson.

Play video

Standing in front of the American Legion in Wantagh, King ripped into America's celebration of the life of Michael Jackson -- instead of the people who serve in the military.

It's safe to say King wasn't one of the 1.6 million people who signed up for memorial tickets.

I don't care if this guy knows first hand that Michael Jackson was a pedophile, it shows a real lack of class and human compassion to say all that he just said. MJ's gone, so this guy's words can't hurt him now, but if his family, friends or loving fans hear it it can be hurtful and what we need to stop giving press to is people who lack compassion and empathy/sympathy. This country and the world certainly don't need more heartless people. Too bad I don't live in NY so I could vote against him.

I guess King was too busy sucking back brews and getting a buzz at the AL to notice that even President Obama made a public statement honoring Jackson's contributions to the country.

He is so ignorant...like Michael would say!
Michael Jackson just wants to help/ give love to children...that's also the reason he brought Neverland...so children can play for free.

Again, if you think Michael is a child molester, then you are ignorant!

Why dont you go and look into the lives and backgrounds of all the remaining repulbicans in so called good standing...including your own. you politicians are doing a poor job yourselves holding up your end of the bargain to protect the interests of the people and yet you go around meddling in these kinds of affairs. Most disappointing!

CONGRESSMAN??? HOW someone that is supposed to serve its constituants can decide who has a low life... HE IS LOW LIFE.... he will never be known... at least michael went to camp zuma to pay his respect to the man and woman in military. He brought joy to the world. I don't need to spend time talking to a FAT CONGRESSMAN who eats thanks to the people who voted for him for now. YOU SHOULD RESIGN YOU LOW LIFE. GO EAT ANOTHER BURGER YOU DUMB ASS

LOW FAT LIFE BURGER EATER STUPID GUY.

Obama honored a child molester? And why not: Obama is honoring all kinds of deviants with his administration.
