DNC Chair Wasserman Schultz’s Statement on Ted Yoho

WASHINGTON, DC – In response to the recently revealed comments made by Republican Congressman Ted Yoho, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz issued the following statement:

“Ted Yoho’s comments aren’t just from a different decade, they harken back to another century when Americans were denied their basic rights as citizens. Yoho’s view is abhorrent and immoral and should be roundly condemned in the strongest possible terms.

“Unfortunately, Ted Yoho’s comments are just one example of what is wrong with today’s Republican Party that thinks the problem in our democracy is that there are too many people participating and is systematically trying to make it harder for eligible citizens to participate in the electoral process.

“As Americans, we should all be focused on continuing our long and proud history of expanding access to the polls and encouraging more participation. That’s a core belief that Democrats hold, not just because it’s good for our party, but because it’s good for our country.”
