Hoyer Statement on the Discovery of Nooses at the Dominion Cove Point Construction Site

December 18, 2016

Steny HoyerOn December 16, 2016, Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) released the following statement today after a fifth hangman’s noose was discovered at the Dominion Cove Point construction site:

“I am horrified to learn that hangman’s nooses continue to be discovered at the Dominion Cove Point construction site, despite efforts by Dominion and the Kiewit firm to cooperate with law enforcement and find the culprits. These disturbing and on-going hateful acts will not be tolerated, and I offer my full support to Calvert County Sheriff Mike Evans and Calvert County NAACP President-Elect Michael Kent as they continue to investigate these occurrences. Those responsible for these acts of hateful harassment must be brought to justice, and I will continue to monitor this situation closely.”

    Why don’t you do something about the heroin epidemic in Southern Maryland Steny????????????? Seems to me if you wanted to do something to help the citizens you were elected to serve, you would make this a top priority instead of playing racial politics as usual.

      Steny Hoyer sucks but it seems like you’re quite naive. As if any politician could do anything to curtail the use of illegal drugs. We’ve had a war on drugs since the 70’s. It doesn’t matter how much money you throw at the situation people are still going to use drugs and drugs are going to keep coming into the country. There will always be a demand for them and because of prohibition it’s the most profitable business out there. If we actually treated drug addiction more as a health issue and less as a crime issue we might actually start to see some progress being made.

    “These disturbing and on-going hateful acts will not be tolerated, and I offer my full support.” Bet he didn’t say that during the Hillary e-mail scandal. This turd needs to fade away as his usefulness has been depleted. But this career politician who became rich in the House, will have his seat until he dies.
