State Sen. Neal Tapio (Argus Leader)

Republican Neal Tapio, who is seeking his party’s nomination for South Dakota’s lone seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, got called out by a local Sioux tribe leader after he claimed that Indian reservations are havens for “incest and molestation.”

According to Native News Online, Tapio recently claimed that “the majority of people living on Indian reservations are victims of incest and molestation,” which he said was creating a pattern of “suicide, violence and… addiction.”

In a statement given to Native News Online, Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Chairman Harold Fraizer unloaded on the controversial GOP candidate.

“I am deeply offended by these remarks about our children,” he said. “The children that struggle everyday with poverty and broken families do not need a desperate politician desperately trying to gain votes by pandering to the bigots and racists to remind them of their predicament.”

Earlier this year, Tapio mused about how a terrorist attack on American soil could help him win the Republican nomination for congress.

“All that has to happen is that there will be one more terrorist attack between now and then and I will be the, just by the Trump effect, I will be the candidate,” he said in a leaked audio recording.
