    GARVEY SPEAKS ON KING ALLEGATIONS WASHINGTON, DC -- Congressman Malcolm Garvey (D-MD-07) released a statement on the ongoing investigation relating to the King brothers in the Armed Services, Foreign Affairs, and the Judiciary on the allegations of nepotism. In his statement, Rep. Malcolm Garvey stated that "the actions by the committee are unacceptable and that the Ranking Member and Minority Leader are obstructing the rules of Congress in order to investigate members of the committee." Garvey continued uttering that he believes that Reginald King (D-CA-09) is "qualified for the position and deserves to serve as chairman." Having served in Congress since 1975, Congressman Garvey believes that Congressman Reginald King is qualified. "I had the pleasure to get to know the King Brothers over the past few years," Garvey stated. "Reggie, who was elected in 1981 has proven to me that he is qualified for the position and I also believe both 'ARK' and Edward are honorable men who have served California well in local politics and have bright futures in Congress." With the obstruction of congressional procedure, Garvey stated that "the Republicans are disrespecting our own set rules to support political gain."
