It seems every lawyer I know has been sending me emails about this scurrilous attack by Karl Rove and Citizen United's unholy love child, the "Committee for Florida's Education Inc.," that alleges Dan Gelber -- a mensch by any measure and I can vouch for this personally -- is somehow anti-Semitic.
It's too bad Dan is a down-ticket candidate in an election where a bunch of yahoos are apparently going to get elected, but this latest attack is just simply beyond the pale.
Here's an excerpt from the attachment to the email making the rounds among lawyers on Dan's behalf:
The more worrisome issue is what do these big money GOP guys have in mind with Ms. Bondi?If this “Committee” were truly interested in providing access to Jewish education for needy children, they could have accomplished that with all the money it is spending to finance these defamatory pieces. But, of course, the purpose of these flyers is not to ensure “access to Jewish education for needy children.” They were bought with undisclosed, anonymous money in an effort to get Senator Gelber’s opponent, Pamela Bondi elected.Not true, Ms. Bondi? Then renounce these despicable practices immediately. The Attorney General is supposed to do justice. To allow such lies to stand unchallenged while you reap their political benefit without absorbing their taint is unworthy of a person who would presume to lead our state’s highest law enforcement office. Your deafening silence on this issue speaks poorly for your sense of justice and your candidacy.
We may have the unfortunate honor in this election cycle of catapulting two Palinesqe rock stars into national orbit.
But that's why we love our silly State!
