Earlier today we did a post on the resignation from the Democratic National Committee in Palm Beach County, FL, of Evelyn Garcia after leaked emails showed her expressing criticism of Israel.
Well the emails have been published, and they are honest, straightforward and demonstrate a gumption missing from Garcia’s later submission to party officials. You can see that the conversation about our “special” friend in the Middle East is just bursting at the seams. Garcia is now running for statewide office.
The original email from Garcia that reportedly caught the ire of a congressional aide who spilled the beans came a year ago, when she forwarded one of Code Pink’s announcements for its Move Over AIPAC event in Washington, “Combat Blackmail of Obama by US Congress!”
A conversation quickly ensued. Note the aide’s reaction (his or her name is blacked out):
“This was sent by Code Pink? I’m appalled..AIPAC is always right!….[Obama] will need the Jewish vote to win and he’s treading on thin ice right now.”
Other emails speak for themselves:
“I am against the illegal occupation of Palestine…”
Thank you Evelyn.
We printed the last exchange here.
The very last sentence in the series of emails from Garcia asks: “If your friends don’t tell you what they think who will?”
