Notwithstanding the dismissal of Jennifer Nelson, there remain many unanswered questions:
Republican Jewish Coalition Executive Director Matthew Brooks said on Friday in a statement that "in more than 25 years in politics I have never seen anything more despicable and offensive than this.”
"Congressman McMahon has fired his communications director, but what about the other staff involved? Who asked for that list to be compiled? Who approved that action? Congressman McMahon needs to do more than apologize for 'inappropriate comments' - he must be held accountable for actions that his campaign staff took to count Jews supporting his rival," Brooks said. “I don't think this is something that should be swept under the rug. Seeing such bigotry from a sitting congressman's campaign is deeply troubling."
Query: Why has this hot potato been ignored by the op-ed pundits of The New York Times?
More to the point, where is the news coverage of this story by The New York Times? After all, it does involve New York. I separately entered the names "Mike McMahon" and "Jennifer Nelson" in the search tool appearing in the upper left hand corner of The Times's online website and found nothing. I also did a Google search using "New York Times", "Mike McMahon" and "Jennifer Nelson", and after examining ten pages of results, again came up dry.
Why is The Times ignoring this story? A case in which the pot has decided not to call the kettle black?
Or, when it involves local Democratic congressional candidates, is it a matter of "See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil"?
