Bono Mack to Ruiz: Condemn Nancy Pelosi's Anti-semitic Comments

Today, Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack (R-CA) sent the following letter to Dr. Raul Ruiz calling on him to repudiate offensive comments made by House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA):

Dear Dr. Ruiz,

Rep. Nancy Pelosi's recent outrageous statement concerning the political exploitation of Jewish voters deserves the condemnation of every American. To imply that support of Israel is a way to mask a hidden desire by wealthy Jews for a tax deduction plays into every anti-semitic stereotype. I am appalled by this remark and condemn it as beneath any public official, let alone the ranking member of the Democratic Party in Congress.

Dr. Ruiz, you have a special obligation as one of Nancy Pelosi's pet candidates to condemn her remarks and immediately demand a retraction. To stay silent will speak volumes.

The environment created by President Obama by virtue of his anti-Israel positions encourages this type of reckless commentary, and there is simply no defense for this behavior which I, along with all fair-minded Americans, find abhorrent.

I once again ask you to stand with all those who reject such despicable tactics and hurtful statements and condemn Rep. Pelosi's comments in the clearest possible terms.

Sincerely,

Mary Bono Mack
