NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - Rep. Peter King is calling out presidential candidate Ted Cruz amid controversy over the senator's comments on "New York values."
On Saturday, King tweeted that Ted Cruz was lying when he said he supports New York's firefighters and police.
"Not true," the Republican said, adding that Cruz did not co-sponsor or vote in favor of the Zadroga 9/11 Health & Compensation Act. King went on to call Cruz "a fraud."
@tedcruz can't tell truth. Says he fights 4 cops & firefighters. Not true. Didn't cosponsor or vote 4 Zadroga 9/11 health bill. What a fraud

Cruz has come under heavy fire from both sides of the aisle in New York after making repeated comments attacking "New York values" during Thursday night's Republican presidential debate.

Peter King... Slightly to the left of DT.
Cruz drowns puppies for fun. Cruz mails condoms to nuns. Cruz dresses like santa and then gets drunk,thus ruining Christmas for children everywhere.
Just a preview for what the media has in store.
FR is starting to look like the DU with all the rabid leftist ranting that goes on here these days.
Is what Peter King states true? Did he or did he not vote for the bill? Peter King’s political leanings are irrelevant to the question.
Yup, with all the ad hominem attacks it sure is.
Was the bill sponsored by democrats?
So is King wrong? Prove it. or you’re just ranting.
Cruz hates firefighters - confirmed.
That's irrelevant. If Cruz didn't support it, he looks anti-police and firefighter. I'm sure Cruz has an explanation.
Peter King is a self absorbed jerk that wants attention.
Peter King is all upset that Cruz didn’t support his pork!
not so irrelevant. If it is a democrat bill you know that it was filled with funding for some liberal cause - maybe some money for PP, or some money for bathrooms for transfreaks.
King is the king of a-holes. Do any of these people know that America was attacked on 9/11? Not just New York. Not just Washington, DC or Shanksville, PA. America. Liberals were running New York before 9/11 and have done so since. Trump brought the discussion around to the responders. He tried to tailor that discussion. He missed the mark by miles. Liberals of New York, liberals of Anywhere, USA are the rightful targets. When the first responders and their photos were Tweeted yesterday, whoever did that was just degrading those heroes.
The problem with being a Senator is that a lot of bills have a lot of garbage attached to them... I’ll have to have the vote confirmed and take a look at the bill before I pass judgement.
We're assuming what Peter King said is true. I'm not sure it has been confirmed.
Mr. Do I Have an Excuse for You...
From what I can find, the senate bill was introduced 4/14/15 but was never voted on. This would mean King is the one who is a lying sack....
