Houston Congresswoman, Sheila Jackson introduced House Resolution 600 at the Michael Jackson memorial. If passed, the Resolution will honor The King of Pop as an American legend, musical icon and world humanitarian. Congresswoman Jackson described Michael saying he is:

“Someone who will be honored forever and forever and forever and forever and forever.”

Before MJ can receive his congressional “pat on the back,” Resolution 600 will be debated on the House floor and could face strong opposition from GOP members who feel the same way as Republican Peter King. King said Tuesday:

“I will do everything in my power to make sure that Michael Jackson is not honored!”

Peter King is the same representative from New York that posted a YouTube video calling Michael a “pedophile, a child molester and a pervert.”

Jackson made sure to point out that Michael was never convicted of any crimes saying:

“We understand the Constitution. We understand laws and we know people are innocent until proven otherwise. That is what the Constitution stands for!”

Unfortunately for Peter King, he will not have a say in the passing of the Resolution. It will be debated by the House Foreign Affairs Committee which he is not a part of.
