US Senator Doug Jones of Alabama tweeted:
OMG! What rock did this guy crawl out from under? This editorial is absolutely disgusting & he should resign -NOW! I have seen what happens when we stand by while people-especially those with influence- publish racist, hateful views.Words matter. Actions matter. Resign now! (Doug Jones, 9:02 PM Feb. 18, 2019) https://twitter.com/DougJones/status/1097677804995518464

US Congresswoman Sewell of Alabama: “For the millions of people of color who have been terrorized by white supremacy, this kind of “editorializing” about lynching is not a joke – it is a threat. These comments are deeply offensive and inappropriate, especially in 2019. Mr. Sutton should apologize and resign.” Representative Terri Sewell, Feb. 19, 2019, 11:09 PM https://twitter.com/RepTerriSewell/status/1097709755114708992

This is not Kokomo Mississippi but Kokomo Indiana in 1920! Remember VP Pence’s home state?
