Dem-NPL Statement on Representative Rick Becker:

 

Dem-NPL Chairman Warren Larson issued the following statement regarding Representative Rick Becker’s (R-Bismarck) offensive Facebook post.

 

“Representative Becker’s Facebook post is offensive to victims of sexual assault and violence and beneath the office he holds. His refusal to apologize and the fact that he is fundraising off this controversy shows his indifference to the pain sexual assault victims face everyday.”

 

It is outrageous that Governor Burgum, the ND GOP, and ND GOP leaders continue to remain silent on this issue and show they apparently support his repulsive post and will put the members of their party over the people of North Dakota.”
