Washington (ANI): A US Congressman has insisted he intends to oppose plans to honour Michael Jackson as an official American legend. Republican Peter King recently slammed the King of Pop, tagging the late star as a "pervert, child molester, paedophile" during a CNN interview.
And he insists he intends to fight the motion to declare the icon "an American legend and musical icon (and) a world humanitarian", saying he will do 'whatever I have to do', reports Contactmusic.
Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee, who represented Congress and the U.S. Black Caucus at the Jackson memorial on Tuesday, announced that she would lead the motion. She also showed off a framed copy of the motion, which was to be debated at the U.S. House of Representatives.
