Governor DeWine Issues Statement Condemning Threats Against Legislators Emilia and Vernon Sykes

(COLUMBUS, Ohio)—Governor Mike DeWine today issued the following statement about threats of violence made over the weekend against Ohio House Minority Leader Emilia Sykes and State Senator Vernon Sykes.

"I was very disturbed to learn that threats of violence were made over the weekend against Ohio House Minority Leader Emilia Sykes and State Senator Vernon Sykes.   It is wrong.  It is reprehensible, and it is unconscionable to threaten someone with violence for doing the job they were elected to do.

"Simply put: hatred has no place in Ohio, and violence will not be tolerated."
