“Jewish Americans cannot afford to make the wrong decision on Tuesday, November 4th, 2008,” reads an email that says it’s from the Republican Federal Committee of PA – Victory 2008. “Many of our ancestors ignored the warning signs in the 1930s and 1940s and made a tragic mistake. Let’s not make a similar one this year!”
The email goes on to warn, “Fellow Jewish Voters of the danger of a second Holocaust due to the threats to Israel from its neighbors.”
Pennsylvania’s Republican Party disavowed the email and says the consultant who sent it has been fired. The consultant, Bryan Rudnick, responded, “I had authorization from party officials to send the e-mail.”
