News

WELLSVILLE, N.Y. (NEWS10) — An investigation is now underway after a swastika and the quote ‘Make America white again’ was painted on a New York softball field dugout.

Governor Cuomo announced just Saturday that a joint investigation between the New York State Police and the State Division of Human Rights is underway to find out more information about the alleged hate crime in Wellsville.

Cuomo also released a statement Saturday saying:

New York has zero tolerance for bigotry, fear and hatred, and those who seek to undermine the core values this state and nation were founded upon. This type of behavior is not who we are, and not who we will ever be.”
