Saban slams Ellison before high-profile forum
One of the largest Democratic donors of the 2016 election cycle declared his passionate opposition to Rep. Keith Ellison's bid for chairmanship of the party on Friday night, calling him a disaster to US-Israeli relations should he be elected to the post.
Before his own forum hosted with the Brookings Institution, at its opening gala dinner at the Willard Hotel in Washington, Israeli- American billionaire Haim Saban said that the congressman's past writings and statements were antisemitic.
"Keith Ellison would be a disaster for relations with the Jewish community and for the future of the Democratic Party," he said.
