Blumenthal Statement on East Haven Mayor Maturo’s Remarks

(Washington, DC) – Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) released the following statement today on remarks made by East Haven Mayor Joseph Maturo after the FBI arrested four law enforcement officials on charges of civil rights abuses:  

“The unacceptable comments by Mayor Maturo are both a disservice to East Haven and appallingly disrespectful to the Latino community and all democratic values. The indictment contains allegations that are serious and significant, and should be resolved promptly and impartially, without prejudicial and damaging remarks.”
