New York State Comptroller DiNapoli Statement on Events in Charlottesville, Va.

August 13, 2017

New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli released the following statement in response to events in Charlottesville.

"The chaos and tragic loss of life in Charlottesville are a warning and a wake-up call. Violence and intolerance are taking the place of discourse in our nation. All leaders, particularly the White House, must call out domestic terrorism and white supremacist hatred by name. Failure to confront and condemn the disease only helps it grow."
