INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Democratic Party Chairman John Zody issued the following statement after Congressional candidate Jeannine Lee Lake has been the repeated target of rising threats and racist messages.
“We stand with Jeannine and against the racist threats deployed to intimidate and silence her. We cannot and will not tolerate this ugly style of coercion and we call on the Indiana Republican Party and Congressman Pence to join us in condemning it. Congressman Pence must stand up and refuse to allow the political discourse to be dragged back to a time when racism was an accepted element. We can and must do better.”
