Florida Democratic Party Rejects Frank Artiles Weak Apology for Racist and Misogynistic Statements, Stands Behind Senator Audrey Gibson
 
In response to Frank Artiles' weak apology for his hate-speech, Florida Democratic Party Chair Stephen Bittel released the following statement: 
 
"Frank Artiles' apology was weak, half-hearted and nowhere near enough. This is just the latest of many hate-filled tirades by Republicans in Florida and across the country. Senator Audrey Gibson is a respected leader who has served the people of Florida throughout her life and their must be a consequence for Frank Artiles' inadmissible actions. The Florida Democratic Party stands behind Senator Gibson and continues to call for Frank Artiles' resignation for his racist and misogynist remarks. Republican leadership must call on Artiles to resign and do something about the hate-speech that has taken over their party."
