Delaney Commends Law Enforcement on Arresting Bomb Suspect, Calls for Restoring Civility to Politics
WASHINGTON – Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) releases the following statement:
“The last few days have been troubling. I want to thank the brave men and women of the Secret Service and law enforcement who worked, and are working, tirelessly on the investigation into these attacks. It is extraordinary that they identified this domestic terrorist as quickly as they did and I am thankful that no one was hurt and hope that there are no remaining packages.
“The events of the past week should serve as a wakeup call for our elected leaders and all Americans that our words matter and that we must change our current toxic, hyperpartisan political culture – and that starts at the top. The constant dehumanizing attacks on our political opponents and the free press must end. We should not allow the voices of reason to be muffled by the shouting and yelling of the extremes. It’s far past time we bring our country together, restore civility to our politics and reaffirm the notion of unity and common purpose.”
