The MassGOP released the following statement regarding revelations that state representative Dylan Fernandes (D) made "racist, homophobic, sexist or anti-Native American comments" on social media. Attorney General Maura Healey hired Fernandes before he became a candidate for state representative, when he was endorsed by both Healey and Senator Elizabeth Warren.
"In light of Rep. Fernandes' bigoted comments, AG Healey and Sen. Warren should rescind the endorsement of the candidate they supported, and apologize to the people of the Cape and Islands for their bad judgment of character. For AG Healey to ignore these hateful words from her former employee would be to continue a pattern of abandoning her stated principles for the benefit of her political allies." -MassGOP spokesman Terry MacCormack
