The Ugly Truth About Todd Rokita

The Ugly Truth About Todd Rokita

WASHINGTON – Today, the Senate Commerce Committee will hold a hearing on Todd Rokita, a nominee for the Amtrak Board. In addition to voting twice to defund Amtrak, Rokita has a history of racist, extreme, and bizarre views.

“Todd Rokita is unfit for public office, full stop,” said Lizzy Price, Director of Restore Public Trust. “From comparing African Americans who vote for Democrats to slaves, claiming that migrant children may carry Ebola, and claiming that pilots should not be required to get regular medical exams, it’s clear that Rokita is performing to an audience of one. And while he may satisfy Trump with his racist comments and bigoted views, it would be a political disaster for any senator to support his nomination.”

“A vote for Todd Rokita is a vote against public safety and public decency,” Price continued.
