The lawmakers signed a letter drafted by Rep. Steve Israel (D-Huntington) demanding that the conservative commentator apologize for saying in her new book that widows of some 9/11 victims are “enjoying” their husbands’ deaths. The book refers to the four New Jersey women as “the witches of East Brunswick.”
“Their personal loss should never be minimized, especially in such a cold and callous way as you attack these victims in your book,” Israel wrote.
As of Friday afternoon, Israel had collected the signatures of 19 House colleagues…
No Republicans had signed the letter, even though Israel invited all members of Congress from the tristate area to do so.
Coulter sells a few more books, the pols earn a few more votes, the Jersey Girls add a few more points to their Q Scores, and Hot Air banks a few more hits in the ol’ SiteMeter. Long may you run, Steve Israel.
Let me know when the Rahm Emmanuel silence-equals-consent brigades finally get around to Michael “Don’t bomb the blue states, Osama” Moore.
