RJC Calls on Nancy Pelosi to Demand Congressman James Clyburn’s Resignation

Washington D.C. -- Today the Republican Jewish Coalition issued the following statement from Executive Director Matt Brooks:

Earlier this week we called for the resignation of seven Farrakhan-connected members of Congress. Today, with the revelation that third-ranking Democrat, Rep. James Clyburn is connected to known anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, we call on Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to demand Clyburn’s resignation. When it was revealed that Clyburn had shared a stage with Farrakhan in recent years, the Congressman had the opportunity to condemn Farrakhan, he chose not to. If Congressman Clyburn won’t condemn Louis Farrakhan’s virulent anti-Semitism, it is time for him to leave Congress.
