Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton Calls on Secretary Ben Carson to Resign

In response to Secretary Ben Carson lying when testifying before Congress, Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton issued the following statement:

‪“As a former prosecutor, I take Congressional testimony very seriously.

“This week, in his testimony before Congress, Secretary Ben Carson lied to me and the American people about his plans to allow discrimination against transgender Americans seeking access to life-saving shelter.

“He lied again when he called me the next day to ‘clarify’ his testimony. He has proven himself to be deceitful and inept as Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

‪“He is unfit to serve and should resign.”
