WASHINGTON, DC – VoteVets, the largest progressive group of Veterans in America, today issued the following statement on recent remarks by Allison Esposito, Republican challenger of Representative Pat Ryan (D-NY18):
“Fringe Republican candidate Allison Esposito calling two-tour Iraq War Veteran, Pat Ryan, ‘a force for evil’ is outrageous and disrespectful in the extreme.
“It’s also entirely expected coming from a member of the Republican Party. Today’s GOP is neither pro-Troop nor pro-Veteran.
“We’d demand she apologize, but we doubt she is capable of that kind of decency.”
