The Mississippi Democratic Party strongly condemns the recent rally held at the AG Museum, where hundreds of Mississippians, along with numerous state leaders, gathered to show support for former President Donald Trump. This event, hosted and funded by AG Commissioner Andy Gipson’s campaign, comes in the wake of Trump’s conviction on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records to cover up a payment to adult film actress Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election.

“It is deeply concerning and frankly alarming to see our state leaders, including Attorney General Lynn Fitch and Governor Tate Reeves, supporting a convicted felon,” said Cheikh Taylor, Chair of the Mississippi Democratic Party. “Their actions reflect a blatant disregard for the rule of law and the principles of justice that our country was founded upon.”

The Mississippi Democratic Party believes that this rally is not just a show of support for Trump, but a dangerous endorsement of criminal behavior and corruption. The message it sends to the people of Mississippi and the nation is that our leaders prioritize party loyalty over ethical governance and integrity.

In light of this event, we are calling for a boycott of the upcoming Mississippi State Fair, an event closely associated with the AG Commissioner’s office. By boycotting the State Fair, we aim to send a clear message that the citizens of Mississippi will not support or tolerate the actions of leaders who stand with a convicted criminal.

We urge all Mississippians who value justice, integrity, and the rule of law to join us in this boycott. Together, we can make our voices heard and demand that our leaders uphold the highest ethical standards.

“The time for action is now,” Taylor added. “We must take a stand against those who would undermine our democracy and the values we hold dear.”
