JDCA Condemns Hateful Robocalls Against Sen. Dianne Feinstein

May 18, 2018

Former Congressman Ron Klein (D-FL), chair of the Jewish Democratic Council of America, issued the following statement on behalf of the organization following anti-Semitic robocalls directed at California Sen. Dianne Feinstein:

“This week, California voters received a robocall referring to Sen. Dianne Feinstein as a “traitorous Jew,”  and urging its recipients to vote for her main opponent, Patrick Little, because “… he’s vowed to end Jewish control over America, starting with Dianne Feinstein, an Israeli citizen pretending to be an American while she takes our money for her real country, Israel, and kills our children for it, too.”

“JDCA condemns this robocall, supports Senator Feinstein, applauds her 25 years of service in the Senate, and deplores the campaign of Patrick Little. Though he claims to have no connection to the robocall, Little refuses to distance himself from its message.

“This vile, anti-Semitic rhetoric is unacceptable—especially from a major Republican candidate for the United States Senate.”
