SWEENEY TO ANN COULTER: YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF
TRENTON – Senate President Steve Sweeney issued the following statement today regarding comments by conservative commentator Ann Coulter, who referred to President Obama as a “retard” on Twitter. In 2010, the Senate President sponsored legislation that removed the “R” Word from the state’s laws and regulations:
“It really does not get any more despicable than this. I honestly don’t know if there is another person on this planet as shameless as Ann Coulter. She has no morals, no boundaries, and no sense of common decency.
“Her thoughtless remarks are meant to provoke and draw attention to whatever latest nonsensical ultra conservative rant she is peddling. I really have no words to describe her other than just a horrible person. I guess going after 9-11 widows was not enough for her. She now has to attack people with disabilities too.
“This is not only insulting to millions of people across the country, but to me, it is personal. I have worked hard to scrub that word from our vocabulary forever, and with good reason: words matter. If Ann Coulter wants to get out from behind Twitter and have a face to face discussion with me on why she wishes to insult my daughter and the millions of people with developmental disabilities in this country, I will have it anytime, anywhere, any place.”
