Another complaint filed against South Bend Councilman Henry Davis Jr. for social media use


South Bend Councilman Henry Davis Jr.'s social media usage has drawn another complaint.

The South Bend Common Council confirmed they have received a formal complaint concerning a tweet written by another Twitter user that Davis retweeted from his own account. The tweet read "Maybe if they could have discovered unborn babies with shortage of brain cells you republicans could have been aborted."

Rhonda Richards confirmed she filed the complaint against Davis in a release, where she stated that his actions showed a "flippant regard for human life in general," and questioned "how the public or council can trust Henry's judgment on any issue when he doesn't seem to even value the most basic--Life."

The St. Joseph County Democrats also issued a statement regarding Davis' retweet. Party Chairman Jason Critchlow reminded that Davis' account reflects his personal views only, and said "As a Party we do not agree with his comments and apologize to anyone who may have been offended."

Last week, the council declined to discipline Davis after formal complaints were filed regarding an obscene photo posted to his Council Facebook page.
