Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries—who took more money from the Israel lobby in 2022 than from any other group and is featured on AIPAC’s website (alongside House Republican leadership)—has so far refused to condemn this tsunami of Republican money.
“To take money from a lobbying group that dictates your foreign policy, I think it’s completely unacceptable. I do not think it’s OK to take money from a group that openly keeps an apartheid system where people’s rights are violated."
They spent nearly $5 million to target and defeat Levin, far more than was spent by any other group. Something is profoundly wrong in our political system when a handful of billionaires, spend millions of dollars, to defeat progressive candidates.
The way to stop AIPAC’s efforts, is to: 1) demand that the Democratic party do something to stop this theft of democracy; and 2) work like hell for the candidates who are pro-Palestine and beat the machine.
