06 August 2008 - Obama silent on antisemitism in Democratic Party
UPDATE: Cohen wins by a landslide. Thank you to the voters of the Tennessee Ninth for rejecting hatred.
Steve Cohen is a Democrat who serves as the representative for the Ninth District of Tennessee. He happens to be a Jewish politician in a heavily black district. This year, he's being challenged in the Democratic primary by Nikki Turner. Turner has refused to distance herself from a campaign circulating this piece of trash:
She is also running ridiculous ads linking Cohen to the Ku Klux Klan. And now this beauty:
Barack Obama has intervened in local races before, but he's silent on this one.
Will he oppose this anti-Jewish Democrat? After 20 years of silence at Trinity, I don't think so.
