Delaware Republican leader fired for blaming Jews for impeachment hearings

(JTA) – A Republican Party leader in Delaware was fired after Facebook posts that were criticized as antisemitic. The Sussex County Republican Party voted on Monday, Jan. 13 to oust its vice chair, Nelly Jordan, the Dover Post reported. Her Facebook comments singling out Jews as responsible for the impeachment of President Donald Trump came to light on Dec. 31, according to Delaware State News. “These jews (sic) have been enrolled to come and testify, to come and interrogate and to be involved in anything that the Democrats enlist them to do to try to look credible to the people of this country,” her post said, according to Delaware State News. Jordan also wrote that Jews were going against the Lord’s will as it was in the times of the Old Testament. Her comments drew criticism from party leaders. Jordan apologized but said she was “not antisemitic” and that her words had been “changed.” Jordan was ousted by two votes and dozens of party members showed up at the Monday event.
