• Special to the Leader & Times

 

WASHINGTON – In light of Florida Congressman Alan Grayson’s shocking email comparing the Tea Party Caucus to the Ku Klux Klan, Representative Tim Huelskamp (KS-01) issued the following response:

“When is enough going to be enough with the Democratic Party and their racism and bigotry? I condemn Congressman Grayson’s actions in employing a symbol of hate and evil in a crass attempt to raise political contributions. No matter where you are on the political spectrum, using the KKK for political gain is beyond irresponsible. He knows full the well the negative emotions and hurt conveyed by his racist imagery.  As a Catholic, I also take great offense at his use of these hurtful images considering the amount of torture and pain many Catholics endured at the hands of the KKK.

Representative Grayson’s actions are an insult to African Americans, Catholics, and all Americans in this country. Shame on you, Mr. Grayson, for your deplorable and racist email.  Shame on the Democratic Party for their tolerance of such hateful tactics. Actions like this do not help our country move forward – especially with an issue that remains sensitive to so many of us here in the U.S.”
