J Street certainly picks some real winners.
The leftist anti-Israel lobby’s PAC backed Scott Wallace, born with a solid gold spoon in his mouth and spawned by a solidly leftist dynasty, whose fund has backed BDS.
Another odd endorsement story occurred in Pennsylvania’s 1st Congressional District. Democratic nominee Scott Wallace came under criticism after it emerged that his charitable foundation has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to groups that promote the BDS campaign.
Wallace disclaimed responsibility for the donations and denied supporting BDS. Democratic Jewish Outreach of Pennsylvania initially declined to endorse Wallace, but ultimately reversed its decision under pressure from the Democratic Party in a toss-up contest.
After the controversy, Wallace tried to reach out to Jews. But this synagogue debate didn’t go so well.
As the political climate continues to heat up, challenger Scott Wallace lost his cool during a debate with Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick. Sunday night at the Congregation Tifereth Israel in Bensalem, Wallace used an expletive and “dropped an f-bomb” in front of those attending.
“Ironically, there was a later question about the need for civility in politics,” Fitzpatrick told WBCB. “Well, a good start is to not use vulgarities in the sanctuary of a synagogue in the middle of a congressional debate.”
Both candidates were standing on the synagogue’s ‘bimah,’ an elevated platform used for reading the Torah during services, when Wallace used the expletive. The outburst silenced the room, and Fitzpatrick was “stunned” Wallace made the comment.
In addition to Fitzpatrick, people in the synagogue and the moderator took exception with Wallace’s obscenity.
J Street. They only pick the very best haters.
