Republican Rep. Peter King said it was the stories by the Associated Press, not the allegations in them about the NYPD spying on Muslims, which he found “disturbing.”
(King spoke at a 3/5/2012 press conference outside 1 Police Plaza in defense of the NYPD.)
the two white Republicans in and around the city are seen as relatively immune from elimination. Michael Grimm’s isolated Staten Island district is difficult to divide, and Long Island’s Pete King is insulated by his seniority in the Republican delegation.
GOP Rep. Peter King of NY-3, is likely to be the chairman of the Homeland Security Committee when congress reconvenes in January. He’s addressed public safety issues big and small. Among the pieces of legislation he’s sponsored is a bill "To require mobile phones containing digital cameras to make a sound when a photograph is taken."
The sound digital cameras often make now are echoes of the old SLR cameras, when the shudder would literally lift up (then down, very quickly), allowing light to pass through the camera lens and directly hit a section of film in the camera.
What sound would you require digital cameras to make?
