Concord, NH – NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement following NH Dem donor and billionaire, Chamath Palihapitiya’s statement on human rights abuses against the Uyghurs in China:
“While New Hampshire Democrats claim to advocate for human rights, their financial sponsors exhibit a completely opposing mindset,” Said NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek.
“Billionaire investor Chamath Palihapitiya, who has donated ten thousand dollars to NH Democrats, has made the claim that “nobody cares” about the continued human rights abuses against the Uyghurs in China.
“Mr. Palihapitiya expressed that these human rights violations aren’t a priority, and went on to simply state, ‘Of all the things that I care about. Yes, it is below my line’.
“The New Hampshire Democratic party needs to immediately return these funds, and confirm their stance toward this ongoing crisis.
“The New Hampshire Republican Party stands with any, and all, oppressed groups – Can NH Democrats say the same?
