(BISMARCK, ND) – Sen. Kevin Cramer recently tweeted a derogatory word that has long been considered damaging to people with disabilities and to common decency.
The North Dakota Democratic-NPL Party Chairwoman Kylie Oversen released the following statement condemning the language and Cramer’s attempt at an excuse:
“The use of this word is hurtful, completely disrespectful, and there is no way that it was a mistake. Either he used it intentionally or it is a word the senator uses often enough that his phone has it saved. It is entirely unacceptable for anyone, let alone an elected official, to use this word in any context.”
