Robo-Call: Under Romney, Holocaust survivors ‘forced to eat non-Kosher’

in Uncategorized by

The Gingrich campaign is making robo-calls in Florida over Mitt Romney’s decision to veto $600,000 in funding to provide kosher meals for poor, elderly folks in senior homes. The robo-call ratchets up yesterday’s attacks over the veto by throwing in that Holocaust survivors were among those elderly “ who for the first time were forced to eat non-kosher.” The Huffington Posthas the full text of the call:

As governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney vetoed a bill paying for kosher food for our seniors in nursing homes. Holocaust survivors, who for the first time, were forced to eat non-kosher, because Romney thought $5 was too much to pay for our grandparents to eat kosher. Where is Mitt Romney’s compassion for our seniors? Tuesday you can end Mitt Romney’s hypocrisy on religious freedom, with a vote for Newt Gingrich. Paid for by Newt 2012.
