Breitbart’s racism becomes an election issue
U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) called on her opponent in their congressional election to stop writing for Andrew Breitbart’s conservative website.
Joel Pollak, a Republican, has written 16 blog posts for Breitbart’s biggovernment.com, which posted a video edited to portray that U.S. Agriculture Department official Shirley Sherrod discriminated against whites. His communications director, Shalom Klein, said Pollak has no intention of distancing himself from the site.
The incumbent congresswoman said Pollak should “denounce Breitbart’s intentional distortion of the truth” and end any further association with his website.
