congress 120621HIGHWOOD – State Senator Julie Morrison (D-Lake Forest) released the following statement in response to recent and current events happening in our nation’s capital:

“The reported rhetoric spewed by newly-sworn in Illinois Congresswoman Mary Miller is disgraceful and must be condemned by all people – regardless of political party, race or religion. Every person with a moral conscience should be offended by anyone quoting Adolf Hitler and should vilify these statements.

“Moreover, as we watch the violent and shameful acts in Washington, D.C. unfold, I urge everyone to practice peace, engage in civil discourse and hope for a better tomorrow. There is room for peaceful protest – there is not room for violent treason.”
