Newtown First Selectman issues statement on racist zoom bombing

Newtown First Selectman Dan Rosenthal has issued a statement about the zoom bombing of a constituent meeting with residents held by 5th District Congresswoman Jahana Hayes.  He says the act of overt racism left him feeling uncomfortable and angry.  Rosenthal noted that after a vandalism incident at Congregation Adeth Israel last summer, it's best not to reference what was said or posted because it's catnip to the hateful.  But he says failure to response creates space for acts of hate to grow and multiply.  Rosenthal added that if no one speaks out when racism happens to a high profile individual, who will speak out when it happens to neighbors, friends or children.  He noted that politics may sharply divide, but common decency should unite.
