NY01- DCCC Calls Jewish Congressional Candidate Lee Zeldin A ‘Coward’

Lee ZeldinThe Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is accusing a NY Jewish congressional candidate of being a “coward.”

In a post on its website, the campaign arm of the House Democrats is asking whether Republican Lee Zeldin (Long Island) is being cowardly about Republican Rep. Paul Ryan’s budget. Zeldin served in Iraq in the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division.

“Over a month after his House Republicans passed Paul Ryan’s reckless budget, Congressional Candidate Lee Zeldin is still too scared to admit how he would vote for the plan, even though he wants Long Islanders to send him to Congress,” the DCCC said in a release. “Even though every member of Congress had no choice but to vote yes or no weeks ago, what’s taking him so long to decide? There’s only one answer: Zeldin is either woefully uninformed, willfully ignorant or a coward.”

A DCCC spokesman also tweeted out a graphic of Zeldin photoshopped onto the cowardly lion from the Wizard of Oz.

The National Republican Congressional Campaign Committee on Thursday is calling on the Democrats to apologize.

“Tim Bishop needs to immediately demand that his cronies at the DCCC apologize to Iraq War veteran and 82nd Airborne paratrooper Lee Zeldin for calling him a coward,” NRCC Spokesman Ian Prior said. “Not only does that classless insult show a complete lack of respect for combat veterans and the brethren of 82nd Airborne paratroopers, but it demonstrates an ignorance of the basic American history.”

  1. The cowardly attack on Lee Zelden by the DCCC is proof that the Democrats are afraid that Tim Bishop’s seat is at risk. Demos is a shill for Pelosi and other than being a government lawyer has never served his country like Mr. Zelden has. Zelden is a long time Suffolk resident and will be supported by Long Islanders.

      What the hell does being a veteran have to do with
      this cowards REFUSAL to admitt where he stands on an issue?
      Do we need ANY MORE WORTHLESS JOHN McCAINS?
      McCain whole pathetic political career revolves around crashing a plane in Viet Nam.
      You are such sad silly people. I mean really.

      Zeldin s a coward just like Marco Rubio.
      I bet YOU were first in line defending John Kerry?
      Yeah, right

      • I’ll take a veteran and army major over a whimp like Demos anytime. Demos is backed by Pelosi money and that is enough to keep anyone with a brain from voting for him. You must be an Obama liberal. Demos is not from Suffolk county, Zelden is. Basic politics, pal, don’t vote for the carpetbagger. You are a dummy.
