Ohio Jew Tossed Out of Sen. Brown Event for Asking about J Street Funding
The Jewish Press ^ | September 22, 2012 | Lori Lowenthal Marcus

In what originally was supposed to be a slam dunk, US Senator Sherrod Brown’s race for reelection in Ohio against the youthful Republican Josh Mandell may instead be turning into a squeaker, and Brown is none too happy about it.

Brown originally had as much as a 17 percentage point lead, but according to a report in Bloomberg, several polls last month showed the race to be deadlocked. Mandell claims the race has become intense because Ohioans are increasingly turned off by the “ultra-liberal, hyper-partisan” Brown, while Brown claims that millions of dollars in negative ads have been run against him by “outside, undisclosed interest groups.”

One Ohioan found out just how testy this race has made Sherrod Brown. Following a talk he gave at the Dayton, Ohio Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, September 18, Senator Brown invited questions. There were a few tough questions put to the Senator by business owners opposed to President Obama’s healthcare legislation, and a softball question about how to contact the Senator’s office.

And then 32-year old Ohio native Joel Griffith stood up. Griffith said, “I’m a proud Jewish American and I’m concerned that the single biggest entity funding you is J Street. J Street has given you $60,000, and as you know, J Street is funded by an attorney for the Saudi Embassy and has also been funded by the producer of one of the most anti-Semitic films ever made …” but Griffith was not allowed to finish his question. The Senator’s first response was that Griffith’s was “clearly a political question.”

True, but the Senator is a politician who was engaging in politics. The political question doctrine only forecloses the judicial branch from addressing a particular issue.

She’s a Jewish newscaster in Cleveland from the 1960s. Owned the station. Know for her in-your-face comments. Some great Youtube of here out there.

I imagine that synagogue coffee klatsches are getting a lot more heated than usual. Between politics and the soon to be war, I bet there are some impressive shouting matches.

Ha! I need to remember that to shove into the faces of some young'uns who knew so much more than I did last election and how obama was the saviour, etc.

I've been having fun asking them how their job searches have been going since graduation, still sending out those resumes, thanks for the "free" healthcare, fun stuff like that, but that quote should but some sting where it needs to go.

I’m wondering just how true the claim of the solid Jewish vote is.. I have had many Jewish partners in my business life, and most were very conservative, at least in their public lives..

This never made any sense to me, it may all be the liberal way of creating a suspicious divide between Republicans and Jewish voters.. Hmmmmmm, it may be working better than we think..

If Dorothy Fuldheim were here she wouldn’t have lasted long, as she would have died from shock after hearing about the 600 Rabbis for Obama organization, the booing of God and Jerusalem at the Democratic convention, and other abominations too numerous to mention.

Dorothy Fuldheim was wonderful: Brilliant, outspoken, funny — the very opposite of today’s boring, propaganda-delivering, overmade-up ladies of the evening...news.

Amen to that. Can you imagine Dorothy talking about the God vote at the convention? That would have been memorable.
