A series of tweets (that were deleted later) has the Democratic governor of Illinois in trouble with the Jewish community today. The tweets from Gov. Pat Quinn urged followers to read an article appearing in the Chicago Sun Times that compared black Republican voters to Jews who collaborated with Nazis during World War II.
Several readers of the Chicago paper were stunned and offended after reading writer Neil Steinberg’s column about the Republican gubernatorial candidate. The black Republican candidate, Bruce Rauner, was compared to Jews who worked with the Nazis against other Jews during the Holocaust.
