Farley Slams Gillibrand for Rallying with Anti-Israel Activists

New York, New York -- U.S. Senate candidate Chele Farley (R, C, Reform) today slammed Kirsten Gillibrand for rallying with anti-Israel activists Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory. Sarsour even introduced “her friend” Gillibrand saying, "I want to introduce to you another champion, another one of our people who works for us on the inside.”
 
Mallory and Sarsour have well-documented histories of criticizing Israel and share close ties to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, an unabashed anti-Semite.
 
“Kirsten Gillibrand is a disgrace, she has abandoned New Yorkers, turned her back on Israel and is clearly focused on running for president in 2020,” said Farley.
 
Yesterday’s rally is just the latest anti-Israel action from Kirsten Gillibrand, who supported the treaty with Iran, opposed the Taylor Force Act, removed her name from anti-BDS legislation and has flip-flopped on supporting bipartisan legislation to punish terrorist groups who use innocent civilians as human shields when carrying out their attacks. Adding insult to injury, Gillibrand will hold a town hall meeting on Long Island tonight at a time when Orthodox Jews can't attend. It is clear she is out of touch with a key constituency in New York.
 
Concluded Farley, “Gillibrand’s actions are part of a dangerous and emerging pattern where the far left of the Democratic Party, led by Kirsten Gillibrand, is becoming highly critical of Israel almost as a default position.”
 
Chele Farley is an outsider with over 25 years of experience in the private sector. She is the Republican, Conservative and Reform Party candidate for U.S. Senate. Farley lives in New York City with her husband Richard and their three sons. For more information about U.S. Senate candidate Chele Farley, please visit www.CheleFarleyforSenate.com.
