Statement on Rep. Alford’s racist remarks
Topeka, KS – Rep. Alford’s comments on Saturday were vile, unfounded, and racist. Many decades since the Jim Crow era, this should not have to be said: the nearly 90-year-old racist tenets Alford promoted have no place in the Kansas Legislature, no place in Kansas, and no place in the United States. Kansans deserve more from our elected officials. Rep. Alford should apologize, and his constituents should find a new representative.
