Cox to Miner: Apologize For Incendiary Remarks

New York GOP Chairman Ed Cox today released the following statement:

“Syracuse Mayor and state Democratic co-chair Stephanie Miner’s divisive attack on Republicans yesterday, calling the GOP ‘a party of hatred that wraps up their hatred in clever 30-second sound bites,’ is completely unacceptable and should not be tolerated, especially considering the circumstances.”

Miner’s harsh attack on Republicans follows the recent sexual harassment settlement scandal involving Democrats Vito Lopez and Sheldon Silver.

“State Chair Stephanie Miner should apologize for her hateful and unfounded attack on Republicans.  There is no room for that kind of language in the political arena.”

“On the other hand, Governor Cuomo has demonstrated a willingness to work with senate Republicans resulting in steps towards growth for New York including cutting the state’s budget, creating a new pension tier and championing fiscal reforms.  We call on the Governor to repudiate this hateful and embarrassing rhetoric.”
