Statement from the New York Democratic Delegation Regarding Vandalism at the Brooklyn Office of Congressman Dan Goldman (NY-10)
New York, NY, November 17, 2023
Today, Representatives Nadler, Bowman, Clarke, Espaillat, Jeffries, Meeks, Meng, Morelle, Ocasio-Cortez, Ryan, Tonko, Torres and Velázquez issued the following statement:
“We stand together to condemn the vandalism discovered this morning targeting Representative Dan Goldman's district office. While everyone has a first amendment right to peacefully protest and make their voice heard, that must not extend to intimidating staff or outright criminal behavior. This is a deeply personal and emotional issue for all who care about a future of peace for both the Israeli and Palestinian people, but we cannot let our disagreements turn us against each other and inflame violence here at home.”
U.S. Representative Jerrold Nadler represents New York's 12th Congressional District, which includes parts of Manhattan, and serves as the Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee.
