Dem U.S. Senate Candidate Calls Opponent A "Whore" For Israel

Lee Whitnum, an author from Greenwich, is running to be the Democratic nominee for a U.S. Senate seat from Connecticut, called U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy (D-CT), one of her opponents, a "whore" for Israel during a debate last night.

"I am dealing with whore here, who sells his soul to AIPAC (the American Israel Public Affairs Committee), who will say anything for the job," she said, in regards to Murphy.

Whitnum also lashed out at another opponent, calling him "ignorant."

Whitnum: I want to change my closing statement a little tiny bit in response. I’m appalled that when I talk about the neo-conservatives it’s somehow twisted, some sort of a racist comment. This is documented fact, the neoconservative role in the taking down of Iraq, unnecessary war is a fact, it’s not opinion. I am dealing with whore here, who sells his soul to AIPAC (the American Israel Public Affairs Committee), who will say anything for the job.

Ignorant, his response to what I said was just shocking. I’m speaking documented fact and I think a zealot. I would like to propose a prosecution of American settlers who go to Israel and maim or kill in the Promised Land. Since 2000, 66,000 of the indigenous culture have been killed, many of them by American settlers. This is viewed all over the Middle East and we are hated for this worldwide. By prosecuting people here who kill overseas, we would solve anti-American sentiment worldwide. This is the #1 reason why people hate this country. If you don’t nip terrorism in the bud and the reason why..

Moderator: Your time is up, thank you. Mr Murhpy.

Murphy: You know, I advocated for all the candidates to be a part of these debates. I might think twice about that with that kind of language being used on the airwaves.
