Congressman Robert Wexler claims to represent the state of Florida, even though he doesn’t live there. And he’s an adamant Obama supporter.
When McCain announced Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate, Wexler immediately accused Mrs. Palin of being a Buchanan supporter (which has proven to be false).
Anyway, he’s now being taken to task by Former state representative and Broward county commissioner Ben Graber.
Graber , son of Holocaust survivors, is challenging Wexler in congressional District 19, and is running as an independent candidate.
He took issue with Wexler for dissing Sen. John McCain’s vice presidential pick, Sarah Palin, the governor of Alaska. According to Graber: “Wexler immediately condemned her as a supporter of a Nazi sympathizer because she wore a Pat Buchanan button … when he visited her town.”
Graber said Wexler’s “behavior” is “not only embarrassing to the Jews, but also dangerous. It is apparent Wexler’s decision-making process is flawed. His inappropriate political use of Jewish issues could promote anti-Semitic backlashes against American Jews. Wexler falsely claims to speak for the Jewish community and he has a history of using anti-Semitism in elections. It was used successfully when he ran for the Florida Senate against Don Childers. Now he wants to use it to frighten Jews into believing Sarah Palin is a threat.”
What is it with these crazy Obama supporters? Does Wexler really believe Jews should support a man who’s endorsed by Hamas, Iran, and Louis Farrakhan?
Who is it that keeps re-electing this man? From the comments I’ve read on the article, no one seems to like him.
