Thornton: "Cocaine Use Has Double-Standard as Seen in Bridgeport Mayor Case"

Green Party US (press release), DC

Hartford, CT – ‘Bridgeport Mayor John Fabrizi should use the media spotlight now on him to expose the hypocrisy and double standards of the war on drugs,” said Cliff Thornton, the Connecticut Green Party candidate for Governor.

“Mayor Fabrizi’s acknowledgment that he snorted cocaine while in office reveals a double-standard,” Thornton said. “Powerful white politicians are held to one standard of behavior, and poor, brown and black people are prosecuted based on another standard for this same behavior.”
