WASHINGTON, DC – Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) Chair Marcia L. Fudge (OH-11) released the following statement condemning the attempted arson attack on Congressman Emanuel Cleaver’s (MO-05) office in Kansas City, Missouri:

“This morning around 3 a.m., a Molotov cocktail was thrown through the office window of Congressman Emanuel Cleaver. No one was hurt and an investigation is underway.

“The Congressional Black Caucus strongly condemns this type of vandalism targeted at Congressman Cleaver, and denounces any act of violence towards Members of Congress. This type of abhorrent behavior is the most ineffective means of voicing discontent or disagreement.

“I expect a speedy, full, and thorough investigation into this incident by law enforcement, so that those responsible are swiftly apprehended and prosecuted. The person or persons responsible for what happened this morning must be punished to the fullest extent of the law.”
