Labor leader defends Ellison from anti-Semitism accusations
by Mallory Shelbourne
The president of the American Federation of Teachers defended Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) on Saturday against those accusing the Democratic National Committee candidate of anti-Semitism.
"I can feel and smell anti Semitism. Keith Ellison is no anti-Semite and it is maddening when anyone who doesn't know him or his record makes that ugly accusation," Randi Weingarten wrote in a Facebook post.
Ellison has been under fire as he mounts a bid to become the next DNC chairman after CNN unearthed comments the Minnesota lawmaker made several years ago defending Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
