Progressive Maryland is calling for Harford County Delegate Mary Ann Lisanti to resign or be expelled following both an allegation of racist speech and her tone deaf statements after the revelation of the original incident.
Lisanti has lost her ability to credibly represent the people of her district and make policy for all Marylanders. Anyone who disrespects African Americans -- as she clearly does -- has no business serving in the Maryland General Assembly.
Issues pending before the Maryland General Assembly have serious implications for people of color. Based on her comments, Lisanti shouldn’t vote on these measures.117 signaturesAdd signature
