Rep. Karen Bass (D- Calif.) recently issued the following statement regarding radio host Bill Handel’s degrading remarks about her colleague, Congresswoman Frederica Wilson of Florida: 

“Bill Handel’s racially-motivated remarks about my colleague Congresswoman Frederica Wilson were degrading and repulsive. Handel deserves to lose his job as well as any planned accolades for his reporting. I’m proud of the grassroot efforts that continue to publicize this derogatory display of on-air racism and call upon Mr. Handel to step down before he is forced to.” 

Last month, women of the Congressional Black Caucus released a statement demanding an apology from White House Chief of Staff John Kelly for his incorrect account of Rep. Wilson’s remarks at the dedication of a new Miramar, Florida FBI Building. Read their statement here.
