MassDems Statement on Busiek’s Homophobic Tweet

BOSTON–In response to Ted Busiek's homophobic tweet, Massachusetts Democratic Party Executive Director Jay Cincotti released the following statement:

"Ted Busiek’s biography needs to be updated to include homophobic, hate speech tweeter who enjoys bullying and wants to be Donald Trump. The notion that his comment is anything but hateful and bigoted is frankly a joke. Nationally, Republicans have fostered this kind of hate to motivate their supporters, and it is unfortunate that the state Republican Party does little more than window dressing to stop it."
