Democratic Party Chairman Gray Slams Rep. Steve Womack’s Statement That Only Europeans Can ‘Actually Fit into the Society’

LITTLE ROCK - Chairman of the Democratic Party of Arkansas Michael John Gray today fired back at Rep. Womack after Womack's statement in which he says we need to "better appeal to people from other European countries" who can "come in here and actually fit into the society as we know it."

 

"The Republican Party is better than what we've seen from its leaders over the past 24 hours," Chairman Gray said. "What Representative Womack said today was racist and quite frankly embarrassing for the people of Arkansas' 3rd District. I've spent enough time in that area of the state to know that the 3rd District is full of good, decent people -- people far above Representative Womack's words today. They know how to treat their neighbor with decency and respect. The people of northwestern Arkansas deserve a leader who reflects its people's decency."

Rep. Steve Womack's full statement can be found on 4029's website here.

    I am a citizen and voter of AR 3 and I thank you Mr. Gray for standing up to this bully of a congressman and letting him know that his views are out of step with the ideals of this nation.

    What is happening in Washinton is an abomination. Arkansans deserve much better that the current Republican representation currently occupying both Houses. The scatological confusion and sabotage affecting DACA, falls on the shoulders of Republicans; prominent in this spectacle, is our own Senator Tom Cotton, who is angling his own age agenda and aspirations, instead of the country’s and Arkansas’ needs. Representative Womack ihas voted to increase the National Debt, line the pockets of the wealthy and won’t stop until they have dismantled the entire social safety net. It’s up to us as Democrats to stop this.

    Senator Tom and Steve working hard to gerrymander immigration. Just like they did to House districts with modern technology in 2010. Gerrymandering is what it is. But it kinda is what dems do also.
