Statement from Mississippi Rep. Angela Cockerham (D-96) Denouncing ‘Lynching’ Comments by Rep. Karl Oliver

“I am deeply troubled by the remarks made my fellow colleague, Rep. Karl Oliver, and those House colleagues who liked such language on Rep. Oliver’s Facebook page.

As one who works across racial and party lines, it is my prayer that the healing process will continue in our state and that my House and Senate colleagues and I will work to build one Mississippi. #OneMississippi”
