Amanda Howland Calls on Roskam to Denounce Wynn, Return Contribution
By: Howland for Congress 2018
"Peter Roskam has the chance to be a leader and call up on the Republican Party to denounce Wynn and his behavior toward women. The fact that he has refused to denounce party leader Wynn and President Trump for their scandalous and disrespectful treatment of women is disgraceful."
