Reaction to Rep. Borowicz

Thank you for your coverage of state Rep. Stephanie Borowicz’s selfie with a member of American Guard. As an FYI, we wanted to share the Anti-Defamation League’s reaction to the representative’s statement, which we posted on social media a few moments ago.

“The fight against bigotry is nonpartisan and apolitical, and the most important thing leaders can do is use their bully pulpit to condemn hate. Representative Borowicz’s failure to take this critical step is wrong and emboldens white supremacy in Pennsylvania. We urge her to reconsider her response.”
