Statement from MDP Chair Lon Johnson on Republicans' Failure to Address Dave Agema
LANSING - MDP Chair Lon Johnson issued the following statement on the continuing failure of Republican leaders to condemn Dave Agema's bigotry:
"It speaks volumes that Republican leaders Rick Snyder and Terri Land still haven't broken their silence on Dave Agema's comments, even in the face of an election year threat from one of their top donors," said Lon Johnson, Michigan Democratic Party Chair. "It's time for Republicans to remove Agema from his post, and to finally embrace common sense equality and non-discrimination protections for everyone in Michigan. Our state needs leaders like Mark Schauer and Gary Peters, who will work to build a stronger, more welcoming Michigan for everyone."
