Hinchey's Anti-Semitism May Cost Him His Seat
Ed Koch's recent endorsement of George Phillips has underscored Congressman Maurice Hinchey's longstanding anti-Israel and anti-Semitic pattern. Glenda McGee just forwarded a Politico article that mentions Hinchey as one of an unusually large number of threatened Democratic congressional seats this year. I was just down in Broward County, Florida visiting my dad and noticed a huge number of signs for Allen West, the wonderful Afro-American conservative running down there. Given the atmosphere of disdain for liberal Democrats, Hinchey's anti-Semitism may put the kibosh on his election.
