King Gets In The Ring

Congressman battles New York kickboxing champion 'Irish' Josh Foley.

A large crowd packed into Mulcahy's Pub & Concert Hall Saturday night to see Rep. Peter King, R-Seaford, take part in an exhibition boxing match against New York kickboxing champion "Irish" Josh Foley. 

King, who represents West Islip, and Foley, a Long Beach resident, duked it out in the ring for two rounds with no winner declared. To see highlights of the match, view the YouTube video above. 

The congressman prepped for his fight at Bellmore Kickboxing Academy. Officials with the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington questioned whether King's involvement in the Mulcahy's boxing event was a House of Representatives ethics violation.

The Seaford lawmaker responded by saying that his participation was just aimed at supporting local business.

I would rather see him stand up and fight for us in Washington DC. Btw In case you didn't know, Mr. King voted for the Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund the federal government through the rest of fiscal 2013. The cost was $982 Billion. He also supported funding Obamacare through 2013. I thought he was against this! I have already sent him an e-mail, but thought some readers were not aware of this and may want to conat his office too http://peteking.house.gov/email.shtml
