Maloney “disgusted” by Charlottesville violence

WASHINGTON – Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney (D, NY-18) said he is “disgusted and saddened by the ugly, hateful and violent events” in Charlottesville, Virginia.

White nationalists and anti-protestors classed on Saturday with one man ramming his car into a crowd of anti-protestors killing one person and injuring 19 others.

“As someone who was blessed to spend years living and learning in Charlottesville – one of America’s most beautiful and welcoming communities, with a history of enlightenment stretching back to Jefferson – I’m disgusted and saddened by the ugly, hateful and violent events taking place there,” Maloney said. “All decent people should demand a return to sanity and a restoration of decency and respect for others.”

In light of the violence, a state of emergency has been declared in the state of Virginia.
