Who's Racist Now? New York Democrat's Campaign Attacks Republican Challenger For Raising Too Much "Jewish Money"

Politico 7/29/10 - Staten Island Rep. Mike McMahon (D-NY) moved into damage-control mode Thursday, firing the communications director for his re-election bid Thursday night after she gave a reporter a breakdown of a Republican rival's "Jewish money" contributions.

McMahon announced he was firing spokeswoman Jennifer Nelson after she provided a New York Observer reporter with a breakdown of Republican rival Michael Grimm's second-quarter financial haul donations from Jewish donors, in an apparent effort to show the former FBI agent has little financial support within the district.

In an astonishing move - putting such a statement on paper - the file the reporter was given was titled "Grimm Jewish Money Q2."

"Where is Grimm's money coming from," Nelson was quoted saying to the Observer. "There is a lot of Jewish money, a lot of money from people in Florida and Manhattan, retirees."
