New York Jewish Rep Cuts in Front of Kosher Food Line at Democratic National Convention
A Jewish congressman from New York was spotted cutting in front of a line of people waiting for kosher food at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) this week, the New York Post reported on Wednesday.
According to the report, Rep. Jerrold Nadler skipped what could have amounted to a 30-minute wait at a kosher food stand inside the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, where the DNC is being held, to grab some pastrami sandwiches. One server said he had visited the stand three times.
Commenting on Nadler’s behavior, Marta Nieves, chair of the Nebraska Latino Caucus, said, “That is white privilege.”
Meanwhile, Manhattan City Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez , who waited patiently on line for the kosher food, said he personally had not seen the fellow Democrat cut in front of people, according to the New York Post.
Nadler is a US Representative for New York’s 10th congressional district.
