CHICAGO - Illinois Republican Party Chairman Pat Brady is calling on Democratic Congressional Candidates Brad Schneider, Tammy Duckworth, and Bill Foster, as well as Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky (D-Evanston) to publically denounce comments made by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi regarding Republican Jewish voters.
Over the weekend in an interview Pelosi insulted the entire Jewish community by stating that Republican Jewish voters are only concerned with tax cuts and that their vote is being "exploited" in the name of Israel's national security.
“Anything less than an explicit rebuttal from Schneider, Duckworth, Foster, and Schakowsky of Nancy
Pelosi’s insulting remarks tells me they are more interested in making Pelosi Speaker of the House again, than the security of Israel,” said Illinois Republican Party Chairman Pat Brady. "Her comment that Republican Jewish voters are only concerned with tax cuts is insulting to ALL Jewish voters. Do they stand with Pelosi? Will they let her to continue to fundraise for them and would they vote for her as Speaker if they are elected? Silence on this issue means complicity."
