DNC candidates defend Ellison against charge of anti-Semitism
by Jonathan Easley
The Democrats running to be the next leader of the national party fiercely defended Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) against a top donor's claim that he is an "anti-Semite" at a debate in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday night.
Huffington Post editor Ryan Grim asked the group of seven candidates how many thought that Haim Saban, the Democratic mega-donor who levied the charges against Ellison, should apologize.
Everyone raised their hands except for Jehmu Greene, a Fox News political analyst running for chairman of the Democratic National Committee who said she abstained because Democrats should not entertain divisive "gotcha" questions.
