Response of Bill Cassidy (R-La.)


Senator from Louisiana. He has served 9 years in the Senate.

The Questions

  1. Are hate crimes a problem in your state?
  2. Should Congress do something about hate crimes and white supremacist violence in your state? If so, what specifically?

The Response

From a spokesman: “Cassidy believes any hate crime is a problem anywhere. Congress has already passed laws addressing, and giving stiffer penalties for, hate crimes involving race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender, or gender identity. Now it is up to enforcement. We also introduced resolution to address the Alt-Left violence of Antifa:" [Ed. note: last sentence was updated by spokesperson on 11/7 to reflect that the resolution has been introduced.]
