(NEWSER) – You knew this was coming: Peter King, who fought hard for Superstorm Sandy aid for his home state of New York, thinks there's "a lot of hypocrisy" when it comes to lawmakers who opposed Sandy aid but are in favor of tornado aid. The subject of his attention most specifically seems to be Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe. King's take is that Inhofe essentially said "Sandy aid was corrupt but Oklahoma won't be" yesterday on MSNBC. King is peeved, but tells Politico he'll overlook the perceived dig because "I don't want suffering people in Oklahoma to be held hostage while we engage in political fights, saying 'I told you so.'"
