Delegate Shane E. Pendergrass said, “I am enormously affronted as a Jew when you in any way compare this bill to the Holocaust. Especially today, shame on you.” Minutes after his speech, Cox provided an apology and clarification on the floor after Delegate Pendergrass’s condemned his comment.
Cox further apologized. When speaking with WDVM, he said, “It was not something that I had intended to correlate in any way. I should have not brought that subject up and the universal human rights discussion was a separate issue. And it was unfortunate, but because I am solemnly remembering the day it was on my mind, and I should have been a little more thoughtful.” Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington expressed their frustration with Cox saying he trivialized the Holocaust and showed his ignorance of history.
