LANSING, Mich. — After recent comments from 74th House District candidate Robert Regan to “lie back and enjoy” rape, Regan’s anti-Semitic posts and social media posts about the reality of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Sen. Mark E. Huizenga, R-Walker, issued the following statement:
“As a Christian, a public servant and a father of two daughters, I find Robert Regan’s comments about sexual assault to be revolting and immoral, and I strongly denounce them.
“His statements about Russia’s unprovoked attack of a sovereign country are contrary to our own nation’s values, and his anti-Semitic posts claiming Jewish people control the banks and were behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks are shameful and disgusting.
“Regan’s comments are not reflective of our community, the people of West Michigan, my Republican colleagues, or our great state. We support a world in which men and women can safely live, work and raise a family — free from violence or oppression.”
