Fun Fact: Jim Jordan’s home state of Ohio’s homicide rate is 49% higher than New York City’s
Via The AP:
Republicans upset with Donald Trump’s indictment are escalating their war on the prosecutor who charged him, trying to embarrass him on his home turf partly by falsely portraying New York City as a place overrun by crime.
The House Judiciary Committee, led by U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, an Ohio Republican, is holding a field hearing Monday near the offices of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.
The committee’s Republican majority is billing it as an examination of the Democrat’s “pro-crime, anti-victim” policies. One committee member, U.S. Rep. Andy Biggs, an Arizona Republican, tweeted that Bragg has “turned NYC into a wasteland,” and that “lawlessness is completely out of control.”
Fun Fact: Jim Jordan’s home state of Ohio’s homicide rate is 49% higher than New York City’s overall rate of 5.8 homicide deaths per 100,000 residents, The News’ study found. Ohio’s homicide rate is also 87% higher than New York’s statewide rate of 4.6 homicides per 100,000
How much is this traveling circus of clowns costing the taxpayers? Nobody is sure, But surely it would cost less to reopen the Ohio State Wresting Team’s allegations that Jim Jordan knew about the sexual molestation happening there during his time as coach and did nothing.
