The results of O'Keefe's latest stunt were preordained and the storyboards for his YouTube video already completed long before he ever set foot in Colorado.
From the website www.iowapork.org (yes, there is actually a site with such a name, and amazingly enough it's not NSFW):
Iowa Pork Industry Facts:
At the end of 2012, Iowa had 6,266 hog operations.
A total of 40,290 Iowans are employed in day-to-day production of hogs.
At any one time, there are approximately 20 million pigs being raised in Iowa.
Iowa producers marketed more than 49 million hogs in 2012.
Nearly one-third of the nation's hogs are raised in Iowa.
Iowa is the number one pork producing state in the U.S. and the top state for pork exports.
Wow, Steve King, way to condemn your own state and its 40,290 swineployees to the fiery depths of Hell!
