Congressman fires communications director over ‘Jewish money’ comment, says such comments have ‘no place in our community’

STATEN ISLAND, NY (Press Release) – Congressman Mike McMahon (Democrat-New York) issued the following statement after his campaign announced that it has fired Campaign Communications Director Jennifer Nelson:

“These comments were entirely inappropriate and there is no place for this kind of behavior. I was outraged by these unfortunate remarks which were unauthorized and are in no way indicative of my beliefs or of my campaign,” said Congressman Michael E. McMahon.

“I am proud to represent an incredibly diverse community and to enjoy an incredibly diverse base of support. Any comments that could serve to divide our community along religious or ethnic lines have no place in our community or my campaign. I sincerely apologize for her comments, and as she has since been terminated from our campaign, there will be no such incidents in the future.”

McMahon’s campaign previously was criticized by representatives of both the Republican Jewish Coalition and the National Jewish Democratic Council
