Toomey Calls on Sestak to Cut Ties with George Soros-Funded J Street

Allentown – U.S. Senate candidate and former small business owner Pat Toomey called on Congressman Joe Sestak to cut his ties with the radical George Soros-funded group, J Street.
 
Over the past couple of days, news reports have revealed that J Street has been secretly funded by the radical left-wing mover and shaker George Soros.  This news has  rattled the White House, where top officials are now distancing themselves from J Street after two years of a close relationship (Washington Times, 09/27/10).
 
For Congressman Joe Sestak, this news is further evidence that his allegiance with far-left groups puts him far outside the Pennsylvania mainstream.  In addition to his close ties with and acceptance of thousands of dollars from J Street, Congressman Sestak has also been aligned with and taken money from a number of radical groups:

MoveOn.Org: The radical group also funded by George Soros has received bipartisan condemnation for its anti-Semitic and anti-Israel rhetoric and its history of inaccurate and inflammatory ads.  Joe Sestak has received MoveOn.Org’s endorsement and over $150,000 from the group this election cycle (FEC.Gov).

Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR): CAIR has been denounced by Democrats and Republicans for its ties to terrorism-related activities and its refusal to denounce Hamas and Hezbollah.  Joe Sestak spoke at the group’s 2007 fundraiser in Philadelphia despite wide-ranging opposition from his constituents.  Sestak has also accepts thousands of dollars from the group’s officers (The Jewish Exponent, 3/15/07) (Politico, 3/19/07) (OpenSecrets.Org).

Citizens for Global Solutions (CGS): Congressman Sestak has embraced this group’s radical views, supporting a doubling of foreign aid to corrupt regimes and the United States’ participation in the International Criminal Court.  Sestak has been endorsed by CGS every election cycle and received $9,200 from the group, making him their number one recipient.  The group is so extreme, Senator Bob Casey returned CGS’s $5,000 contribution when he ran for Senate in 2006 (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, 09/08/06).

“Congressman Sestak shows a very consistent and disturbing pattern of aligning himself with political organizations that attack Israel and the Jewish community, or are funded by individuals who are hostile to Israel,” said Toomey Communications Director Nachama Soloveichik.  “Sestak says he’s pro-Israel, but at some point, his consistent alignment with the likes of George Soros, MoveOn.Org, CAIR, and J Street makes that claim just flat-out not believable.”
