Larson Statement on Representative Omar

February 12, 2019
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) released the following statement:

“It was the right thing for Rep. Omar to unequivocally apologize yesterday for her use of an anti-Semitic stereotype. As Speaker Pelosi said, anti-Semitism must be called out and condemned. Comments that invoke anti-Semitism are hurtful to the Jewish community and there is no place for them in the public discourse.”
