Standing up for voters by calling out shameful politics.
Yen Chou, a candidate for Assembly District 40, held a press conference with community leaders to demand an apology from Assembly Candidate Ethel Chen who filed a lawsuit that Chou claims was tantamount to an act of ‘voter suppression and harassment’.
“I think it is shameful that any candidate would stoop this low to separate our community,” said Chou in a press release. “We need to move forward and work to unify our community toward the best we can be and not be an instrument of segregation .”
Were these voters unfairly targeted by the Chen campaign?
Chou’s claims were backed up by community Leader Chaudhry Anwar, “I cannot understand why I was approached by an Ethel Chen staffer asking me did I collect the signature of two Korean community members. I Feel that the question was insulting because my wife is Korean,” adding, “This is not the way anyone should approach our community.”
