Bread for the World Statement Regarding Rep. Ted Yoho’s Verbal Attack on Rep. Ocasio-Cortez

Washington, D.C. – Bread for the World today released the following statement regarding Rep. Ted Yoho’s verbal attack on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:

“Bread for the World is deeply concerned about Rep. Ted Yoho’s verbal attack on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and what we and others perceive to be his non-apology.

“Bread for the World is concerned that his behavior in the past few days does not reflect the values of respect and compassion that Jesus calls on us to exhibit every day and we expect from our board members. Before we determine any further action, we have reached out to his office and have sought an opportunity to speak with him about the incident.”
