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.

    Because for Jerry Nadler, pastrami sandwiches are more important than stopping Iranian nukes.

    So much for Democratic Party decrying inequality

    Which is worse, cutting in line or eating pastrami? Oh, I forgot, things like fruits and vegetables are not considered kosher foods.

    In any case, welcome to the world of lashon hara and rechilus. For the uninformed, that means that Jews don’t spread gossip or rumors alleging negative things that someone has done, even if those things are true.
