Press Release

White Plains, NY – Congresswoman Nita M. Lowey (D-Rockland/Westchester), Ranking Member of the House Appropriations Committee, released the following statement on White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s comments regarding the Holocaust:

“It is deeply disturbing that the President’s chief spokesman has either a cavalier aversion to facts, is completely unmoored from reality, or both.

“Instead of articulating a clear, comprehensive strategy toward Syria, Sean Spicer chose the second day of Passover to repeatedly downplay the horrors of the Holocaust.

“Mr. Spicer’s lack of credibility renders his multiple clarifications meaningless. He must apologize and resign immediately.”
