Pelosi Condemns Comments by Don Imus

April 11, 2007

"'Like Americans all across the country, I want to express my deep disgust with the despicable words used by Don Imus. What he said was indefensible, and hurtful. Such racist and sexist words have no place in our society. His words do not reflect the values of hope and opportunity that these outstanding young women represent, nor do they represent the aspirations of our nation. As we commemorate the 35th anniversary of Title IX this year, we should celebrate the achievements and contributions of our young women athletes, not denigrate them with reprehensible comments."

It's time for the Administration to join the search for solutions to climate change."
