NJDC denounces fellow Democrat for counting foe’s Jewish donors

{Editor’s Note: A subsequent press release from National Jewish Democratic Council retracted this statement below.}

WASHINGTON, DC  (Press Release)– National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) President and CEO, David A. Harris, on Friday issued the following statement regarding revelations that Representative Michael McMahon’s (D-NY) reelection campaign was “counting” his opponent’s Jewish donors:

“NJDC strongly denounces the actions taken by Representative McMahon’s campaign. It is never acceptable to ‘count Jews’ in this way or to perpetuate age-old stereotypes about the Jewish community.

While McMahon took an important first step by holding his spokesperson accountable for her inflammatory statements, many unanswered questions about the incident remain. We strongly encourage Representative McMahon to work quickly and appropriately to address the deeply irresponsible actions taken by his campaign.”
