Jerry Long blames Rep. Andy Skoog for rowdy protest in Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on June 10, 2016

Is Democratic State Representative Andy Skoog partly to blame for Monday’s actions of a few vulgar protestors in Ottawa? His campaign opponent thinks so.

Republican Jerry Long put out a statement late Thursday night saying “Rep. Andy Skoog’s inflammatory language resulted in shameful, classless, uncivilized behavior in Ottawa this week.” Long says Skoog is using class-warfare rhetoric to stir up public animosity.

The union trucker goes on to say “there is no doubt that Rep. Skoog got the exact result he was hoping for. Now it has backfired.” In laying blame on Skoog, Long pointed to a photo of a man standing next to an Andy Skoog sign allegedly making an obscene gesture towards Governor Bruce Rauner.

Long says Skoog should apologize for the “consequences of his incendiary language.”
