House Speaker David Osborne and Minority Floor Leader Joni Jenkins issued the following joint statement in regards to email that lawmakers received that make false and anti-Semitic claims:

“On Friday, many legislators received a hateful, anti-Semitic email that was as false as it was disgusting. We are proud to stand together with the Jewish community, including the American Jewish Committee and the Jewish Federation of Louisville, in denouncing this obscenity. We are also working with the Legislative Research Commission to ensure that legislators and staff alike are much less likely to see this type of bigotry. Kentucky was the first state to adopt the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s definition of antisemitism, and a core component of that resolution is denouncing hatred whenever and wherever it happens. This is one of those times.”
