Mich. GOP should pull TV ads featuring woman who made anti-Semitic statements
The Michigan Republican Party is broadcasting a television ad featuring Deb McIntosh that attacks Leyton, who is Jewish. McIntosh posted the following statement Saturday on a message board at MLive.com:
“[H]ow dare the FLINT URINAL not show me the respect to get my side of the story, instead of ONE SIDE,,,oh A JEWISH OWNED PAPER,,,,and lEYTON IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE JEWISH FEDERATION,,,,FLINT JOURNAL you should be ashamed of youself,,,I will never ever give you the time of day again ever......stay away from me, your as bad as the liars when you do not print both sides.”
The Leyton campaign is demanding Schuette and the MRP repudiate McIntosh’s anti-Semitic statements, immediately pull the television advertisement and cease using her as a campaign spokeswoman.
“Anti-Semitism, racism and hatred of any ethnic group has no place in political campaigns,” Leyton spokesman Todd Cook said. “We demand that Bill Schuette and the Michigan Republican Party join us in condemning Ms. McIntosh’s statements and immediately stop using her in political advertisements.”
