Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC: Rep. Andy Harris, M.D. (MD-01) issued the following statement after rioters toppled the Christopher Columbus statue in Baltimore’s Little Italy on July 4th:

“The failure of Baltimore’s leadership on Saturday is just another clear example of the breakdown of law and order in our nation in recent weeks.  I commend Governor Hogan’s stance on this incident which clearly crossed the line of peaceful protesting.  Should Baltimore’s leadership have deemed they want to remove this statue, appropriate steps could be taken.  Furthermore, should the leaders in Baltimore continue to stand idly by, I encourage Governor Hogan to quickly intervene and enforce law and order. ”
