Can we disinherit him? According to JTA’s breaking news, “U.S. Sen. George Allen (R-Va.) acknowledged he has Jewish roots.
‘I embrace and take great pride in every aspect of my diverse heritage, including my Lumbroso family line’s Jewish heritage, which I learned about from a recent magazine article and my mother confirmed,’ Allen said in a statement on his Web site.
He added, ‘I was raised as a Christian and my mother was raised as a Christian.’”
Well. At least the last statement appears to be true.
JTA continues:
His supporters booed the reporter, Peggy Fox of WUSA-TV, and he said he was “glad” they had done so. He accused Fox of “casting aspersions” and said he upheld freedom of religion.
Right. Proud of his heritage. Well, George, we’re “proud ” of you too.
