Chairman John Zody Weighs In On Zay’s Racist Comments

Indiana Democratic Party Chair John Zody weighed in on the Senator’s statement still missing the mark to explain his word choice, and apparent beliefs.

“Regardless of when he said it, the statements made by State Senator Andy Zay are disgusting,” said Zody. “We are living in a state where a lawmaker elected to protect Hoosiers appears to have little concern for those in harm’s way – either through words or action. I would encourage Senator Zay to not be “more careful” with his words as he says, but to take them down altogether and recognize that racism is, in fact, a very real problem in our society. In the meantime, while Republican leadership at the Statehouse is silent, Indiana Democrats will continue fighting until every Hoosier feels safe, secure and protected equally under Indiana law.”
