Scott Wagner, who is hoping to represent all Pennsylvanians as Governor, has flatly refused to denounce the violence, racism, and bigotry that occurred in Charlottesville over the weekend.
“While Democrats and Republicans across the country swiftly condemned bigoted and racist behavior, Scott Wagner hasn’t said a word,” said Sinceré Harris, executive director of the Pennsylvania Democratic Party. “His silence is an endorsement of these kinds of abhorrent actions and beliefs and is completely unacceptable as not only a state senator, but as a someone who is running to represent all Pennsylvanians as governor.”
“Wagner said he didn’t want to get involved in a national debate, and he doesn’t intend to issue any statement related to Charlottesville on his social media profiles.” [York Dispatch, 8/15/17]
