For John, BLUF: I would think our friends who are Democrats would be embarrassed. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From Power Line, 27 January 2018, by Mr Scott Johnson. Note this is over a month ago.
Here is the lede plus one:
Edward-Isaac Dovere reported in Politico yesterday that Minnesota Fifth District Rep. Keith Ellison is exploring a run for Minnesota Attorney General. Dovere confirmed his story with four acquaintances of Ellison with whom Ellison has discussed the possibility. Dovere adds that Ellison “has indicated to several people close to him in recent days that he’s less likely to run,” although Ellison still “finds the idea enticing.”The thing is, Representative Ellison cozying up to Minister Farrakhan means he is cozying up to a rabid anti-semite. That is not a good look for a member of the US House of Representatives. And how did the Democrats pick him to be the deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC)? Are we to assume the Democratic Party has become, as have its Progressive followers, a home for anti-semitism?
In addition to serving in Congress, Ellison holds the position of deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee. According to Dovere, Ellison “has grown listless and bored” as a congressional backbencher and is frustrated serving at the pleasure of DNC chairman Tom Perez. Ellison has been ready to move on for a while, as I inferred from his disingenuous 2014 memoir cum manifesto My Country, ‘Tis of Thee.
I wonder what DWS thinks?
