Did Mike McMahon's campaign fall into a hot tub time machine and come out thinking they were in 1930's Germany?
This is just so disgusting and revolting, I can hardly believe it and yet here we are in 2010, with barely 50 years separating us from a time when the Jews were nearly exterminated and this:
But in an effort to show that Grimm lacks support among voters in the district, which covers Staten Island and parts of Brooklyn, the McMahon campaign compiled a list of Jewish donors to Grimm and provided it to The Politicker.
The file, labeled "Grimm Jewish Money Q2," for the second quarter fundraising period, shows a list of over 80 names, a half-dozen of which in fact do hail from Staten Island, and a handful of others that list Brooklyn as home.
"Where is Grimm's money coming from," said Jennifer Nelson, McMahon's campaign spokeman. "There is a lot of Jewish money, a lot of money from people in Florida and Manhattan, retirees."
As a point of comparison, the campaign also provided in-district and out-of-district fundraising totals from McMahon and Grimm's G.O.P primary opponent, Michael Allegretti. However, they did not provide an out-of-district campaign filing from Grimm, but only a file of Jewish donors to him.
It's hard to believe, but Jennifer Nelson was Mike McMahon's communications director. She was tasked with crafting and presenting the candidate's message so it attracts voters.
Clearly this was an epic fail, as both a communications director and a kind and tolerant human being.
And today Ms. Nelson was fired.
