Torres Statement on San Bernardino County Deputy District Attorney Michael Selyem

July 10, 2018
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Norma J. Torres (CA-35) released the following statement on San Bernardino County Deputy District Attorney Michael Selyem’s discriminatory social media posts:

 

“San Bernardino County Deputy District Attorney Michael Selyem’s social media posts about minorities are deeply offensive to me and my constituents. These comments have led many of us to question whether racial prejudice may have influenced his judgment as a prosecutor. San Bernardino County’s diverse community depends on a criminal justice system that is free from discrimination—and that requires a prosecutor who is committed to protecting all Americans, regardless of their race. I urge the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office to conduct a complete review of Deputy District Attorney Selyem’s cases as part of its administrative investigation.”
