BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (WTNH)– The mayor of Bridgeport Bill Finch is facing threats after a comment he made when he appeared on MSNBC on Monday.
Finch was being interviewed about the Blizzard by Reverend Al Sharpton. In the interview Finch thanks Sharpton for his work in Washington.
He said “you’ve been fighting the good fight on climate change. We can see crazy climate here. We’d like to have a little bit more of you in Washington.”
Those comments drew a lot of backlash from around the country, including some racist comments and threats.
Bridgeport police are investigating at least one of the threats.
