(Newser) – Rep. Steve King thinks President Obama's latest family embarrassment, the boozing Onyango Obama, is getting preferential treatment in his drunk-driving case, so the Iowa Republican wants to give him a little more special attention—in the way of a House hearing. "We have to bring drunken 'Uncle Omar' in front of the House Judiciary Committee, drill down into this, and tell America what's going on," King tells Fox News, as reported by Talking Points Memo.

"If any one of us nearly ran over a police officer, we would face the fury of the law," King said. And this is far from the first time an Obama has gotten special treatment, King says: "I watched as President Obama's aunt, Zeituni Onyango, also evaded [Immigration and Customs Enforcement]. The sympathy, the bleeding heart of Janet Napolitano decided to use an administrative authority to grant President Obama's aunt asylum." (Read more Steve King stories.)
